someone on the support list asked whether we would also include
fiction works, specifically his fantasy stories that are somewhat
allegorical. I sort of told him that it wouldn't be suitable for the
official Sword module list (see my reply below).

Are there any plans to have an "inofficial" module list? I noticed
Troy has some err... nonbiblical modules ;-) on his qpsword page (I
even read one...). If not, I might be interested in doing one myself
-- I plan to convert the Pater Brown texts from CCEL.org for my train
rides :)
