this is part of as days pass by, by Stuart Langridge

There may be those of you who are wondering why this section is called afe, and indeed what an afe is.
AFE stands for alt.fan.eddings, which is a Usenet newsgroup devoted to the works of David and Leigh Eddings. These works are predominantly fantasy, although there are two contemporary stories.

If you're interested in fiction about Eddingsian characters and locations, or written in the Eddings style, or you want to write some of your own, then take a look at my Eddings fan-fiction area. This area is the archive of the stories posted to the newsgroup alt.fan.eddings.creative, and you can also read the FAQ for the newsgroup here too.

AFE itself is a freewheeling, friendly and occasionally on-topic newsgroup. If you want to know more about afe people, places or things, take a look at these afe resources.

Also hosted here is the AFE Knowledge Repository, also known as the nvFAQ. It is designed to be a database of Eddings knowledge, covering inconsistencies, questions, extrapolations, clarifications and plain trivia, which is beyond the scope of the FAQ itself. (The FAQ can be found at Guardians of the West: see the AFE resources.)

Meets: see my notes and associated things for tECII (including the radio interview and the Big Dave mp3), and tecIV (including the Malloreon Mystery).
