Home/about us

Welcome! I am Tom “TJ” Darby, your host.  The Ale 81 Inn is a vehicle for several things and you will see some evolution of the site over time. In the coming months it will serve as a platform for publication of a novel. We are starting out as a free site and will always have a free public side, but as we migrate to the pay feature access to full content will require a subscription.  No ads. No pop-ups. No bots. No data collection.  EVER.

Our regularly featured pages include:

Doom and Reprisal – from Ford Wenty, our field correspondent

Hell’s Chronicles –  short stories with a view from the underworld

Passione Azzurra –  by Celestial Wilde

The Smoking Bong – from Carlton Milhouse, your botanist

The Guest Suite – featuring guest contributors

Poet’s Page – poetry from staff and guest contributors

Yes, there will be Blog… – that would be the blog. Who know’s what may turn up?
