Those of you who have been here for a while know that The Cult has gone through many iterations over the years. From about 1999-2002 we were just a Chuck Palahniuk fansite. But that changed in 2003 with the first incarnation of our Writers' Workshop. Over the next few years, we broadened into features, interviews and reviews.
For as many fans that loved these new eclectic offerings, there seemed to be twice as many that were confused by it. "Wait, why aren't we talking about Tyler Durden?" You might laugh at that, but it's true. There's just a large, large group of Chuck fans that want us just talking about Chuck. After all, it is his official fan site. And we understand and respect that.
It was because of this growing non-Palahniuk content, that we first began to seriously consider a stand-alone site. About one year ago we began discussing the creation of a new site dedicated to support this type of content. We discussed the idea with Chuck and he was a full supporter of this decision. If you know anything about Chuck, you know how modest he is. He cares about his fans and fellow authors alike.
With this in mind we set out with a new goal; to appease the reader just interested in Chuck Palahniuk content, and to give the visitor to our site who likes these other offerings... more.
On October 1st we are launching a new website called LitReactor.com. Many of you who follow us on our social media feeds already might know about this endeavor. It's been in the works for over a year now and we're extremely excited about it.
