I've just been sorting out one of my old Usenet news folders for Rec.arts.books. It contains all the postings I found of interest between 1992 and 1999. Time to remove the dead stuff. I came across this post.
Subject: Yahoo! PURE FICTION wins another award! From: David Bradwell Date: 08/23/1996 01:31 PM Newsgroups: alt.books.purefiction, misc.writing, rec.arts.books, alt.books.reviews Hi everybody, Everybody here is rather chuffed at the moment! As well as being listed in the Internet Magazine top 20, Pure Fiction is now officially cool! We've just been recognised by Project Cool as one of the coolest sites on the Web. If you want to see what the fuss is about, point your browser at www.purefiction.com. Bestselling novels and how to write them ... and plenty more to come! Best wishes and thanks to all those who have helped! David
