Ray Aldridge: The Stromlidt Museum (goodpots.com)
"I suppose you might list it under art, because of the sf stained glass, but its real function is as a literary conceit. You might list it under fiction, because one of my F&SF stories is attached to the site, and I'm adding my Nebula finalist novella from a couple years back. There's even stuff for sale, though it's not seriously meant, I'm afraid. I guess I'll have to leave it up to you." (Ray Aldridge) [Updated Nov 2001]

The Science of Star Trek (scientium.com)
"Is Star Trek really a science show, or just a lot of "gee, whiz" nonsensical Sci-Fi? Could people really DO the fantastic things they do on the original Star Trek and Next Generation programs, or is it all just hi-tech fantasy for people who can't face reality?" Written in 1993.

"...full-featured information service for buying and selling out-of-print, used, rare and antiquarian books." [Updated Oct 2001]
Amazon.com Books (amazon.com), Seattle, Washington.
This is a big one. This site has the only worthwhile use of "cookies" I've seen yet - they give your browser a magic cookie to use to keep track of your "shopping basket" of purchases. They've recently started a "Build Your Own Bookstore - Amazon.com Associates Program" where you can put together a web page that recommends books for sale, and take a commission. Instant bookstore kit, just add web pages. Your SFRG maintainer has already seen two such instant bookstores show up wanting to be added to the SFRG. I'll go out on a limb here and predict that more will turn up, and that other virtual megastores will set up similar partnership programs... Gosh, I wrote that first paragraph years ago, about 1996? 1997? And now everybody knows about Amazon, they've added to their product lines, other online-only bookstores have sprung up. Amazon.com quietly discontinued their deep-discount policy, so you should (as always) shop around before you buy. [Updated Oct 2001]

"The store is an SF/Mystery bookstore." Their "Favorite Links" page has quite a few SF and fannish links; in fact, I could only find two links that were mystery-related, so I'd guess that SF is their first love. Oh, and they sell books, too. (Lori Wolf) [Updated Oct 2001]

Terry Pratchett: Discworld Monthly - WWW Edition (ufbs.co.uk)

Terry Pratchett: Clarecraft Discworld Figures (clarecraft.co.uk)
They're selling little figures, and have photos of all of them on-line. "I don't need to tell you how full of descriptive detail [Terry Pratchett's] books are, or, how in a few sentences he can create a character that you feel you know. His prose bends the English language, twists it and curls it up a bit and in doing so, creates images which delight, amuse and remain in your mind. Trying to re-create that magic in bits of sculpture is, let me tell you, not easy. Everything we do is examined and approved by Terry (and everything is you know, right down to the last ruddy button). When he laughs and wants to take a piece home, then we know we've got it right and all those days we spent at Colchester Zoo observing their Orangoutan were worth it because it means that our skills as sculptors come close to his skill as a story teller."

William Shakespeare: The Complete Works (chemicool.com) mirror copy (mit.edu)
"Welcome to the Web's first edition of the Complete Works of William Shakespeare. The original electronic source for this server is the Complete Moby(tm) Shakespeare, which is freely available online. There may be differences between a copy of a play that you happen to be familiar with and the one of this server: Don't worry, this is a very common phenomenon." Contains indexes by Comedy, History, Tragedy, and Poetry; Shakespeare discussion area, search engine, other Shakespeare resources on the Internet, chronological and alphabetical listings of plays, Frequently asked questions, Bartlett's familiar Shakespearean quotations, and more. "Shakespeare's plays are often arranged in three categories: tragedy, comedy, or history. I've included that arrangement here (along with a fourth column for poetry), based on the arrangement of the electronic Moby edition, but it is important to realize that the categories are not Shakespeare's... The arrangement of the plays into the three categories is a practice begun with the First Folio, which was printed in 1623, seven years after Shakespeare's death." (Jeremy Hylton) [Updated Oct 2001]

Howard, Robert E. Archive (bigbadbarbarian.com)
"Robert E. Howard is the grandfather of sword and sorcery fiction. During the 1930's, Howard almost singlehandedly redefined the genre. His characters--Conan, Solomon Kane, King Kull, Black Turlough and others--lived and fought in colorful worlds where all men were mighty, all women beautiful, and all problems simple. Yet these characters had a realism to their motivations. Howard's writing style had about it a relentless grimness. It set sword and sorcery on a path away from the happily-ever-after, and toward the more dramatic, emotionally charged stories that are written even to this day. Lovers of fantasy have much to owe Robert E. Howard." (Steve Hogan (bigbadbarbarian.com)) [Updated Oct 2001]

Craig Figley's Home Page (plix.com)
"I have been an educator for 20 years in the rural byways of eastern Washington, and an illustrator of science fiction and fantasy subjects for much longer. Raised in the tradition of 50's pulp science-fiction movies and television and mesmerized by the U.S. Space Program, immersed in the imaginative musings of the great SF writers of the Golden Age, I have taken to spinning off images that share a central, unifying theme: that in infinite time, in infinite space, anything is possible. That these images should find their way to the Internet is the culmination of a lifelong dream...that of giving back to culture something of the sense of awe and mystery that beguiled this child of the 1950's and continues to do so today." (Craig Figley)
Clark Ashton Smith: The Eldritch Dark (eldritchdark.com)
"Clark Ashton Smith (1893-1961) is best known today for his association with H.P Lovecraft and the Cthulhu Mythos. However, his work that relates to the mythos is a small proportion of his output. Clark Ashton Smith thought of him self primarily as a poet and wrote over 500 poems and prose poems... His vivid imagination along with ironic sense of humour set him apart from his contemporaries in the pulps. Smith was also a self-taught artist whose paintings, drawings and sculptures reflect the fantastic worlds of his fiction." (Boyd Pearson)

"This bibliography began as "Voyages to Mars", a two-part article I wrote for Sirius in 1993. At the time there was a boom in Mars fiction and though I tried to be as complete as possible, my article was soon out of date... Some people will wonder why I haven't included H.G. Wells' War of the Worlds. This is because this bibliography is about Mars, not about Martians, and I have stuck to works set on or dealing with the planet. I have tried to include as broad as possible range of books on this theme, from planetary romances by Edgar Rice Burroughs, to hard science fiction by Kim Stanley Robinson. With one special exception, I have not included any juvenile fiction about Mars, nor have I included any media tie-ins or spinoffs." (Christine Hawkins) [Updated Oct 2001]

Filk is a type of music, loosely related to Science Fiction.
Nick Smith wrote a description of filk (blars.org) but there is no simple agreed-upon definition. Many SF cons have some kind of filk, ranging from entire filk conventions to giving the filkers a room so they will shut up.

Zines, Magazines, Web E-zines: Updated links.

Albedo One (eircom.net)
"Albedo One is the longest running Irish magazine of speculative fiction. It is our intention to run stories and a selection of non-fiction from the magazine here, on a regular basis, updating the site when the humour takes us... At present our world-view may be a little insular and provincial, given our geographical location at the edge of civilisation (the sign on the map on the ocean next to our little island reads Here Be Dragons). Hopefully, entry onto the Internet will expand our horizons. If you like what you see here, or are consumed with an overwhelming desire to read small press magazines (hard copy), please email us for details on how to get the original printed version (It's got lots more interesting stuff, honest)... The electronic version offers fiction, interviews, reviews, and will be expanded regularly." (Roelof Goudriaan)
Concatenation (concatenation.org)
"The SF & F Concatenation is a volunteer-produced (semi-pro) zine by members of the European science and science fiction communities. The 1997 UK edition was primarily distributed at the 1997 Eurocon (Dublin), the 1997 Festival of Fantastic Films (Manchester), Novacon (Birmingham) and with Scary Dreams magazine (1997 autumnal edition). The Romanian edition was distributed by the Association of Romanian Science Fiction and the (Romanian) National Federation of Science Fiction Writers. The distribution of the Spanish edition is currently being organised... [the web site is] currently a subset of the print zine but over time it will be expanded with material not in the original zine." (Matthew Freestone)
DargonZine (dargonzine.org)
"DargonZine is an electronic magazine (ISSN 1080-9910) that prints original medieval fantasy stories written by aspiring Internet writers. It is the publication vehicle of the Dargon Project, a collaborative writing group where authors write in a common milieu, sharing settings and characters. The project was founded to allow aspiring writers on the Internet to meet and become better writers through mutual contact and collaboration. DargonZine only prints stories which take place in this setting. DargonZine is the successor of FSFnet, which was the Dargon Project's original magazine. Between FSFnet and DargonZine, we have been continually producing collaborative fantasy fiction since 1985 and are the longest-running electronic magazine on the Internet." (Ornoth D.A. Liscomb, The Dargon Project)
Emerald City (emcit.com)
"I should point out here that the 'zine has no connection whatsoever with Seattle. The name 'Emerald City' came from a tourist brochure I read when I first moved to Melbourne which described my new home as the green city in the land of Oz (other Australian cities tend to be too hot for much greenery). However, I'm delighted that the Seattle in 2002 bid committee have seen fit to advertise my fanzine on their t-shirts. Thanks guys :-)... I should point out, however, that the text that appears here is pretty much identical to that in the email and paper versions of the 'zine. I do not have much patience with the view, held by many US fanzine fans, that electronic 'zines are somehow not the real thing, and are in some way intrinsically different from paper 'zines. As far as I am concerned, it is the writing that is important, not the method of delivery." (Cheryl Morgan)

(Lisanne Norman)

Authors P: Updated links.

Jerry Pournelle: Chronology of Jerry Pournelle's Future History (chronology.org)
"Jerry Pournelle is perhaps the science fiction author most devoted to history and politics. His Future History began, not as a series of stories which he later linked together, but as his projections of a possible future consistent with "valid principles" of sociology and politics. This led to a "future" which is perhaps more pessimistic than the classic SF futures of Heinlein, Asimov, and Niven. Yet within this context he writes of those who triumph past intimidating odds, struggling for the survival of the human race... My timeline of Pournelle's future history is both a chronicle of events and a chronicle of sociology. In particular, Jerry Pournelle's twenty-first century is full of political twists that no one could believe (unless he or she knew what the twentieth century had seen, of course)." (Larry King)

I'd never heard of him, unlike Asimov or Clarke, and I'd sometimes found their work a bit stodgy and dated. Lord knew what this obscure author from the 1940s would be like, but Moira liked him so I thought I'd give him a go... I was instantly hooked."

The adventures take place on the world Ifreann, a place not so different from Earth but with far more magical energy." (Dave Womack)
