Fan Initiatives

As an editorial publication dedicated to analysis and commentary, The David Chronicles maintains a policy of non-involvement when it comes to promotional efforts for fan projects, and even for David himself. We feel that our ability to remain objective, fair, and balanced depends on our commitment to impartiality, and so we instead choose to avoid all such initiatives and materials rather than select from among them.
