I've redone my fiction website, with some new artwork I commissioned and a new theme. I've made some particular choices I think will improve readability, but I'd really like some opinions on how well it works for people other than myself.
This is the new home page: http://fiction.courage-my-friend.org/
This is an example writing page: http://fiction.courage-my-friend.org/random-dreams/dajoen/
I'm most interested in comments on whether or not it provides a pleasant and effective reading experience. Is there anything distracting you on the page? Is there anything missing? Does the navigation feel intuitive?
