Welcome to Obernewtyn.net
Since 1999, Obernewtyn.net - affectionitely known as Obernet to the international community of misfits - was home to all the latest news, discussion, and information about the Australian author, illustrator and all-around lovely person, Isobelle Carmody. Taking its name from Isobelle Carmody's most popular series, The Obernewtyn Chronicles, Obernewtyn.net thrived as a fun community to discuss Isobelle Carmody's books, and anything really.
As the web evolved and the teams managing the website got busier, the community was shifted to a Facebook group to better facilitate the wants and needs of members, and to more easily keep in contact. Newcomers to Isobelle Carmody's worlds are encouraged to head over and join our Obernewtyn Chronicles community on Facebook, where the majority of misfit, bookish and writing discussion, meet planning, and the Obernet Book Club take place!Join the misfits
Where's the old site?
It's still online, but archived.
Due to the nature of online communities changing as new platforms evolved, and the content management system we were using to run the site having some pretty borky updates, we made the decision to archive the old site.
As the community put a LOT of time and effort into the site since 1999, it's going to remain archived indefinitely for posterity. If you had an Obernewtyn.net login, feel free to click the below link, log back in, and access whatever you want to relive (just excuse the mess; we've naught had a chance to clean up for a while). If you're looking for anything in particular on the old site but can't find it - send any of the oldbies a message on Facebook.Visit the old website
