About Dogeared Memberships

In the course of unrelated discussions, it has been pointed out to me  
that some folks on the ListServ can't see certain pages on Dogeared.  
This is because not all members of the ListServ are members of  
Dogeared, and many Dogeared pages require a member's logon and password.

But there is no reason for anyone not to become a Dogeared member and  
receive a logon name and password. Here are three ways to become a  
Dogeared member:

1) Join as a paying member, sending in $15 - $100.

2) Ask for a complimentary membership, reserved for folks who  
genuinely can't pay and don't possess the resources to make editorial  
contributions. Folks receiving complimentary memberships are expected  
to contribute editorial when they can.

3) Join as an editorial contributor (a new category I just made up)  
by sending in a bunch of info not already on Dogeared, conforming to  
Dogeared's policies: dust jacket images, text of dust jacket blurbs,  
or building on any of the many ongoing Dogeared projects. [I'll work  
on developing this idea.]

By the way, folks who make editorial contributions Above & Beyond the  
Call of Duty are awarded (actually, they earn) life memberships.  You  
can see the names of these dozen Dogeared luminaries by going to the  
Membership Roster page  and scrolling to the bottom:
