Daniel Keys Moran's works cry out to be discussed, so I formed a mailing list soon after the publication of The Last Dancer. Because it provided a convenient and distinctive handle, it is the "Continuing Time" mailing list, but it's charter is for the discussion of all DKM's works.
Daniel Keys Moran is on the list. This is a wonderful thing. He graciously allowed us to set up a large on-line library of his works, both published and unpublished. We get the inside scoop on upcoming books, and we have gotten intriguing hints at the nature and inhabitants of the Continuing Time.
Two people administer this list, Sol Foster (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Charles Clark (email@example.com). Sol is the big DKM fan, and keeps archives and this message and such. Charlie is the good friend who keeps the list running, fixes this page when Sol is lazy, etc.
For those of you who are not interested in the discussion, but would like to keep on top of DKM news, we suggest subscribing and then turning on digest mode. The list is not high volume usually, but this will keep the number of messages you need to scan low when there is a burst of activity.
You can join the list and manage your subscription two ways; with a web browser or by email.
The easiest method is with a web browser. Go to the list's information page, and subscribe to the list. You will receive an address verification email to which you must reply and that's it. If you are already a subscriber go to the same listinfo page to edit your options or see the list archives in a hypermail-style format.
Some of the options you may set if you are a subscriber are to disable mail delivery if you want to stop receiving the list temporarily, to set digest mode on or off (off by default), choose to NOT receive your own posts to the list (off by default), or to choose to conceal your address from the subscriber list which is available to other subscribers (off/not concealed by default).
To manage your subscription by email, send mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
This mail is processed by a list manager known as Mailman. Send mail to one of the above address with majordomo style commands in the body of the message. (All that's needed is the single word command itself.) Some of the commands are:

- Find out who is on the list.
- Show the current values of your list options

- Full list of Mailman commands with their full set of options and descriptions.
If you have forgotten your password (or never got it in the first place) you can have Mailman send your password to you. Go to the list's information page. At the bottom of the page, next to the Edit Options button, enter the e-mail address Mailman sends your mail to and press the button. You will then be presented with a screen of options. Select Email My Password To Me.
