What is this site?

This site provides alternative ways of listing the 500+ posts that Jo Walton has posted on Tor.Com. Tor.Com does let you list all the posts, but the list is shown with some detail and takes over 20 pages to display; the All Posts link above presents a concise list, one post per line, of all the posts in one page.

There is a description of the rationale behind the posts in the Thursday January 13 2011 post, entitled "500 posts by me right here on Tor.com" [ Post ].
