General Site Information
This site has been redesigned and tested to work with Internet Explorer 8 and Firefox 3 onwards. It uses stylesheets extensively and, therefore, may be unreadable by older browsers and non-PC web browsers such as webtv. My apologies to those people affected by the redesign but the majority (98%) of people accessing the site use the newer browsers, which are available FREE as downloads from Microsoft and Firefox, or from the cover disks of most PC magazines.
I am gradually placing information regarding each TV and Movie appearance by Eric Close on the relative page - such as synopses, links to screen captures etc.
Eric Close Character Fiction
I am slowly moving the archive over into the Eric Close Fiction and Art collection on AO3 as it has far better features for uploading, sharing, reading/downloading stories, searching... and is being maintained by a permanent bank of staff who LOVE fandom in all its many forms.
So if you notice stories disappearing off the Fiction Archive then FEAR NOT! They are not gone, just on the AO3 collection instead. I'll update individual page links on UpClose as I move forward.
PLEASE CONTACT ME if you already have stories on AO3 and want to add them to either or both the MB and EC collections on AO3... or simply edit your story to post to the collection - type Eric Close in the collection box. The collection is moderated to avoid stories that don't feature Eric Close ending up in the collection but I will approve as quickly as possible.
No matter how you choose to read, I hope you will consider sending feedback to the author. AO3 allows KUDOS and COMMENTS, and the old archive allows COMMENTS.
It may encourage them to write even more fiction for your enjoyment.

Warning: Access to ADULT fiction by Minors:[Back to Top]
Be aware that there are ADULT as well as general stories accessible from this site - extreme violence, bad language, or ones containing explicit sex scenes, including stories of a homoerotic nature (Slash).
I have considered all options, including access to ADULT fiction limited by formal age statement, but it is impractical and unrealistic to assume that this would make any difference to someone determined to read ADULT material. Instead, I shall have to take the same view as many other sites, both professional and amateur, and recognise that I have the power only to provide warnings.
The only people truly capable of restricting what kids see are their parents and guardians.
Parents and guardians should please consider using the NET NANNY features provided by your ISP (Internet Service Provider, eg. AOL, Hotmail) or install on your PC one of the many programs available to restrict access to the internet.
Please use your own discretion when selecting stories to read. Stories of an ADULT nature are clearly marked and additional warnings are given when an ADULT link is selected. It will be assumed that these warnings have been read and understood before you start to read a story. However, if you feel that there was insufficient warning on any particular story then please contact me with the name of the story and the author, and I will amend the warnings accordingly. Stories will not be removed from the archive unless they contravene the rules of submission.
