Various authors: Mind's Eye Fiction (tale.com)
An electronic publisher of science fiction and other genres. Three authors your maintainer recognized right off the bat were Spider Robinson, Bud Sparhawk, and Tom Easton. "Mind's Eye Fiction publishes professional short stories on the Web, concentrating on science fiction. You can read the beginning of a story for free. If you like it, you can either buy the ending of the story for a small fee or participate in an interactive advertisement and have one of our sponsors pay for it instead. (Not all stories have sponsors yet...) If you choose to buy the second part of the story, the electronic payment system will give you a form asking for your account ID. You type your ID and password, click the "Buy!" button, and you can read the ending of the story right away. The authors will be paid 75% of the amount you pay, less taxes and transaction fees. All of these payment systems allow you to obtain a refund if you feel the story wasn't worth the amount you paid. Think of this as your money-back guarantee." Note from maintainer: I believe this was the first site I added to the SFRG that sold fiction over the net, before the proliferation of e-book formats. (Ken Jenks, Dave Howell) [Updated Oct 2001]
