There are two mailing lists maintained at danmahoney.com. Here is a basic breakdown:
This is a low-volume list mostly for announcements of new books, releases, or tour information, as well as announcements of site updates. This list is moderated, meaning the only postings will come from The Man Himself and site staff, except in special cases.
Subscribing to this list is easy, simply send a blank email to:
To unsubscribe, send a blank mail to:
The second list is:
This is a mid volume mailing list (expect a couple messages a day). Anyone who is subscribed may post to this list, but it is kindly requested that posts are kept reasonably on-topic. Please resist the urge to send us all the chain letters, we've already got copies of our own.
You have our personal guarantee that your name or personal information will not be given or sold to any third parties, however, it should be noted that if you post to the discussion list, your name and e-mail address will be visible to all the members.
Because of the slightly higher volume, signing up for this list is a two-step process. First, either send a blank email to:
After doing either of the above, you will be sent a confirmation email, which will have a confirmation code in it like this:
auth cb7e2848 subscribe danmahoney-discussion email@example.com
Which means you would need to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with that auth-line. This is done mostly for our own protection, to confirm that you actually are at the address you fill in here. We try to make it as quick and painless as possible, though!
to write to the list, send an email to
and it will be sent to all the list members. Please do NOT send subscribe and unsubscribe requests to this address.
