AbstractHistoryArchive Description

An ejournal of fiction, non fiction, and artwork set in a shared world, the planet of New Ceres:

'The world of New Ceres was originally devised by Gillian Polack, and further contributed to by the authors and staff writers of [the] first issue. Writers and readers ... build and develop [the] world by submitting fiction and nonfiction world building articles and by interacting on the ezine forums.'

Source: Alisa Krasnostein, 'Editorial', New Ceres 1 (2006).

New Ceres is a world consciously trapped in the eighteenth century, a temporal anachronism enforced by conservative factions within government and by the sinister Lumoscenti (the golden monks). According to the ejournal's main page:

Meet the world of New Ceres, an exciting and dangerous place. Its water is green and its inhabitants are sophisticates.

New Ceres is precarious: its New Enlightenment constrains society as well as liberating old thoughts and literature and drinking customs. The planet plays interstellar politics to defend its independence and it recruits refugees from Old Earth and the conquered New Alliance planets to maintain some dangerous habits

On New Ceres you will find coffee houses and highwaymen, drinks, gambling and illegal hi-technology.
