Tom's Xena Fan Fiction Archive was the first major archive for Xena: Warrior Princess fanfiction. It was last updated in 1999 but it remains online so that fans can still access the stories.

The site was listed in the Fan Fiction on the Net directory in 1998.[1]


The archive is part of Tom's Xena Page which premiered June 1996 on the net.[2]

In a Whoosh! article Lunacy says about the page:
In March 1997 three major fanfic events occurred. First, MaryD became the fanfic editor at TOM'S XENA PAGE. With a history of involvement in STAR TREK fandom, MaryD brought an admirable sense of dedication to the job immediately instituting a number of exciting changes. She started offering interviews with bards through a section named FROM THE BARD'S QUILL, furthering the growing celebrity of Xenite bards and giving potential new writers the opportunity to read about how established bards worked, where they got ideas from, etc. She also introduced the EDDIES - special commendations given to stories she felt merited recognition. MaryD would eventually leave Tom's page to start her own site with a fanfic page called THE BARD'S CORNER, which today is among the most popular and best managed fanfic archives.[2]
