    Price of 1 Year Membership Fiction Section?

    Hello,
    I was wondering why the subscription cost for the fiction section was so high? 18$ seems like quite a lot, especially per year. If there's a good reason for it, sure. Just thought I'd ask what that reason might be? Sorry if this comes off like I'm trying to tell you what to do with your site, I'm really NOT trying to do that. I'm just honestly curious as to the price and the reason(s) for it?

    I recall the price being debated at the time of its instigation, and basically the figure of $1.50 a month (the price of a can of coke - roughly) being thought as fair.

    That money goes to basically covering the running costs of the site.

    ps: Don't forget the majority of contributions are free to access.
    Look again at that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there--on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.
