Hmm... didn't we have this discussion before? Also, is "contemporary" based on when it was written or what the setting was.
Seeing as this is an informal group I would say we are pretty lenient. I would say anything from 1900 or later that is not science fiction/fantasy type stuff is going to be ok. But, if you are not sure... post it and we can decide as a group.
