Welcome to the Graveyard of the Turtle.

This page is the main page for the archives of the The Voice of the Turtle,
in both its electronic and paper incarnations.

My beloved spake, and said unto me,

Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away.
For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone;
The flowers appear on the earth;
the time of the singing of birds is come,
and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land;
The fig tree putteth forth her green figs,
and the vines [with] the tender grape give a good smell.
Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away.


The Electronic Turtle (1998-present)

The Electronic Turtle began broadcasting to the nations in the Summer of 1998. To prevent the Contents page from becoming unfeasibly long and tedious, we've created seven handy pages listing and providing links to the stuff that was published at The Voice of the Turtle in 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, and 2004.

The Paper Turtle (1993-1995)

The paper Voice of the Turtle was a stirring collection of six little red books published from time to time in Oxford between 1993 and 1995. We reprint in this archive the original editorial exhortations and the tables of contents from the six Paper Turtles. A smattering of hyperlinks can direct you to a small amount of salvaged content, some of which has made it into the Dictionary.

Ben Fender's essay in the final paper Turtle, "Remembrance of Turtles Past", might be a very good place to start.

There are no plans afoot to reproduce a complete electronic archive on this site; in any case, some of the original computer files have been lost. If writers of the original articles would like to see their work reappear here, they have only to get in touch and we will see what we can do. You can read about the heroic individuals who wrote for the early issues of The Voice of the Turtle and learn what became of them on our useful People page.







Avanti Popolo!
