In the Huffington Post’s brand-new book section, Jürgen talks about the ideas behind Fictionaut:

What would happen, I wondered, if you gave in to that pull and let anyone publish? There are a great many writers worth reading, many of them published and many more who never make it past the traditional gatekeepers. Could we trust social features and a recommendation algorithm to help each other find them?

Read “Why Anyone Can Publish on Fictionaut.”

    By “anyone” you of course mean “only those we deem worth of invites”?

    I’ve followed a few links here, and it sounds great, but I can’t log in, can’t favorite stories, can’t comment, can’t post my own stories.

    I also keep getting stymied by the “Sorry, this story does not exist anymore.”

    Fantastic site. Keep up the good work promoting it.

    Hi AIC — thanks for the nice words. You’re right, Fictionaut is still invite-only while we’re improving the tech site of things to make sure it can handle open signups. Until then, you can request a login here: We’re doing our best to fill these speedily.
