Welcome to The Journal Entries of Kennet R'yal Shardik, et. al., and Related Tales.

An erotic space opera spanning the next three thousand years, The Journal Entries is the largest, oldest and longest-running serial of any kind on the Internet, published continually since August 1990. Straight, gay, lesbian, furry, outrageous, kinky, often romantic and always thoughtful, these stories are a loving homage to the science fiction you wanted on the shelves all along.

This is the best collection of the Journal Entries available anywhere. The copyright notice permits other people to host the stories, but this is my collection of my stories and the only place where you can find the newer works. I hope you enjoy it.
