This is the archive of nonfiction pieces by Daniel Keys Moran. Most of them were taken and edited from posts that he made to the continuing-time mailing list. They include general information about the Continuing Time (its creation and current status as a project) and information about his career as a writer, including some of the problems he's had.

There's also some speeches, Dan's political views, and true real-life incidents.
