Russell Hoban community


Post to the revitalised board on this site, Yellow Paper, to discuss all matters to do with Russell Hoban and his work.

The original, legendary Russell Hoban forum was The Kraken. Established by Dave Awl in 1999, it ran to thousands of messages, including some from Hoban himself. Sadly, Yahoo Groups are being deleted/limited from 28th October 2019. The Kraken mods however are in the process of preserving all the posts in an archive for release soon, and The Kraken lives on in spirit as the global community of Russell Hoban fans.


Follow @russellhobanorg for the latest news and updates from here and elsewhere around the web.


The official Facebook page now has over 1,000 fans.
