THIS IS A RESTORED VERSION OF ARGO FORG’S HALL OF STATUARY,
HOSTED BY THE PYGMALION SYNDROME.
A FEW WORDS ABOUT THE FICTION PAGES:
1: I HAVE MADE A FEW JUDICIOUS EDITS TO STORIES, WHICH MAINLY INVOLVE CORRECTING A FEW OBVIOUS TYPOS AND ADDING PARAGRAPH DIVISIONS TO BREAK UP WALLS OF TEXT AND SEPARATE SPEECHES. IF ANY AUTHORS OBJECT TO THIS OR WISH TO DISCUSS ANY OTHER ISSUES RELATING TO THE FICTION PAGES THEY ARE WELCOME TO GET IN TOUCH WITH ME.
2: PLEASE NOTE THAT AUTHOR E-MAIL ADDRESSES ON STORY PAGES MAY BE OBSOLETE.
3: FOR THE SAKE OF COMPLETENESS I’VE ADDED THE CONCLUDING PART OF "THE QUINT-QUARTS" TO PAGE 1, AND ADDITIONAL INSTALMENTS OF NOVA'S SERIES TO PAGE 3, PLUS THE FINAL CHAPTERS OF "LASSOK AND ZAIRBHREENA" AND OTHER STORIES BY COBALT JADE TO FLESH OUT PAGE 5. NONE OF THE ARCHIVED VERSIONS OF PAGE 4 HAD ANY STORY LINKS BECAUSE A BIG CHUNK OF THE PAGE CODE WAS MISSING. FORTUNATELY HEPZIBAH SENT ME WHAT SEEMS TO BE A COMPLETE SET OF THE SITE'S FICTION INVENTORY, WHICH I’VE USED TO PUT TOGETHER A NEW PAGE 4. PAGES 6 - 8 WERE ALWAYS BLANK, SO UNLESS I EVER FIND OUT IF AND HOW THEY WERE EVER MEANT TO BE COMPLETED THERE’S REALLY NO POINT INCLUDING THEM HERE.
4: SOME SERIES BEGUN HERE ARE CONTINUED OVER AT THE LTBSA (NOW ALSO HOSTED ON MY DOMAIN). TELL ME I SENT YOU.
--LEEM, JUNE 2012
For those of you who are big fans of Mannequin Lover's Fiction Pages, [now The LTBSA - Leem] (and if you haven't been there, shame on you!) you might guess what's in store for you here in the Hall of Statuary Fiction Archive. Here I am trying to collect some of the fiction I've enjoyed reading from ASFR writers, who-- as a sort of shameless plug-- include some of the best writers of speculative fiction I've seen in a long while. A side note: I have taken many of these stories from postings either to the newsgroup, to my e-mail address or to ML's site. If this offends those who have posted the stories, I apologize, and at a word from you, I will delete them. (However, you can think of this site's Archives as free plugging of your stories, and take heart that I have in no way marked up, edited, or changed these stories from the way they appeared in previous posts.)
Over the past few weeks, everyone has been asking me, "Argo, when is the big Fiction Archive update?" and "Are you ever going to wipe the dust off your Fiction Archive?" Well, this is it, baby! I've been running around like a chicken with my head cut off trying to figure out how to make my archive site more accessible, bigger, and all-around better, and I hope this works... even if it doesn't, I'd like your input on it... so tell me what you think! Even if you abhor e-mail, there's always the message board now, so feel free to make your opinions known... and keep sending those stories! Who knows, I may even have a couple new ones here fairly soon!
THE ARCHIVE INDEX
The list of stories below are linked to the stories themselves. Click on the story title to view the file. The icons on the right will give you an idea of the primary type of transformation dealt with in the story. Note that some stories have more than one different type of transformation or deal with several different transformations. In such cases, the icon represents the most-often used transformation or the transformation most central to the plot of the story. In some stories, of course, this system doesn't always work... so in those cases, I have used the "other" icon.
If any information (such as author name, title, or editorial errors within the stories) is incorrect, please contact me as soon as possible so I can rectify them. Thank you!
DISCLAIMER NOTE: Most all the stories in the fiction archives contain descriptions and themes of a sexual nature, most importantly including that of men and women becoming frozen, turned into statues and mannequins, and the like. Due to the graphic nature of these stories, and the fact that A) I am an active believer in freedom of the press and, B) I haven't the money or time to put an adult check on my site, I will state: If you are under 18 or the age of consent in your particular province, state or country, you are requested to look elsewhere for fictional enlightenment. If you are a net-minding fascist left-wing busybody that blushes at the word "breast", an overagressive and overprotective 1950's-PTA-minded parent who would like to see me kicked off the net for saying the above word "breast", or an overzealous moral-prejudging religious (either born-again or not) fanatic that is sure that I'm going to go to (insert name of your belief's place of eternal damnation) for even thinking about the aforementioned word "breast," well.... you're probably not gonna like what's beyond here, either, so don't bother. If you do continue and are underage or easily offended by such themes, after I told you not to, I won't be held responsible. So nyeah.
