My Sliders Fanfiction

The original Sliders. From left to right:

Professor Arturo and Quinn Mallory
My favorite TV show of all time, more than Star Trek, more than Doctor Who, is Sliders. It was a nineties TV show about four people forced to travel (slide) into parallel worlds. Each episode, the Sliders found themselves in alternate versions of Earth. Back in the nineties, much of my free time was spent online with other fans of the show, dissecting every episode, complaining about the cast changes and time slots, and imagining future storylines. I had autographed photos of the whole cast, and even ran the first (and ultimately only) online Sliders convention.

One of my biggest contributions was my Sliders fanfiction, pretty much the only fanfiction I ever wrote except for my Douglas Adams novel, Really Wild Things. My Sliders fanfic was very popular, and I appreciated being able to share my writing with others when my regular writing was going nowhere. Most of my stories were archived on the Sliders Fanfiction mailing list.

Over the years since the show's cancellation, I lost track of the fan community. I discovered in 2011 that the Sliders community is still alive and active, but that most of the fanfiction archives no longer exist. In tapping into the Sliders BB forum, I discovered some people wanted access to my old stories. I still have them, so I'll be archiving them here.

It will take a while, to be honest. I need to clean up the typos and formatting issues with the old text. I've also learned a lot about writing since then, so I want to flesh out the stories more. Think of it as a “director’s cut.”
