Carol's Xena Fan Fiction Tape Consortium is a webpage for ordering Xena fanfiction on audio tape. The stories are ca. 440 hours of Xena/Uber fanfiction read by WordWarrior.

A note on the webpage in a Wayback capture from January 2000 says, "WordWarrior is retiring from recording fanfic [...] The stories that can be pre-ordered below will be the final stories that the consortium will be doing. I expect those stories to be ready for copying/shipping in Dec/Jan"[1], which indicates that the consortium had been active in 1999 and before. The website had an associated ONElist mailing list. Given, that ONElist only existed between August 1997 and November 1999, that gives an additional idea of when the consortium was active.

From the main page:

For those of you unfamiliar with what a tape consortium is, it is a group of people who combine their monies to order a story that is too expensive to order individually. My part is to organize the consortium. I don't do this to make money. I only do it for my actual costs which include WordWarior's fee, tapes, labels and postage.[1]

All tapes have a length of 90 minutes. The page includes notes about inclusion of songs and audio commentary.

Songs/Chatter: Includes a song performed by Wordee a capella at the beginning of each side of the tape. Chatter includes miscellaneous comments throughout the story but primarily at the beginning of the tapes.

No Songs/Chatter: The songs have been dropped but there is still miscellaneous comments throughout.

No Songs/No Chatter: There are no songs and no comments made throughout the story. Wordee just reads us a story <g>.

The site was part of The Xena Multimedia Page.
