The Encyclopedia of Arda

 The Encyclopedia of Arda

Link submitted by dormouse on 2002-04-11

Contents include - Information

Subjects include - Lord of the Rings, Tolkien

Extremely detailed and well-interlinked reference site - you can easily lose hours here. Main focus is on the books, but there is a page on the film(s) and how they differ from the books, as well as various trivia.
Professional looking, un-fussy style.

The site is being a bit fussy recently, occasionally being unavailable, i'm guessing they're being slightly overloaded. It's worth checking back though.

At first glance, this is just a cutesy-dragon cartoon. But actually, the guy has a wicked sense of humour. The daily rant can be entertaining as well ;)

Worship the comic.

Alia - 2002-10-23

This is an excellent daily comic, with good artwork and an ongoing storyline. It doesn't just go for gags, as the plot often gets centre stage. The story has included various sci-fi related parodies and some techy humour. If you have the time, it's well worth reading from the beginning! Sluggy comics are available in book form from specialist publisher Plan 9, who deal with this particular niche market. We have books 1-7 in the library if you prefer to read it offline ;) Archive back to the very first strip (25th August 1997).
Occasionally they do animations, but in general it's just a simple image each day.

 Fictionwise eBooks

Link submitted by dormouse on 2004-03-08

Contents include - eBooks, Shop

Subjects include - Books, Science Fiction and Fantasy

An eBooks shop which has a heavy focus on SF/Fantasy. Sells lots of short stories as well as full length novels; the short stories tend to be in non-secure formats and may be as cheap as 50 cents. They have a nice Award Winners section where you can search for winners of many different genre awards. They also seem to have regular special offers, and a number of stories are available to download free. Payment allowed by credit card or Paypal; surcharge for orders less than $5, but you can maintain a small balance on the site to pay out of.

 Internet Book List

Link submitted by dormouse on 2004-10-16

Contents include - Information, Links

Subjects include - Science Fiction and Fantasy, Books

A book indexing site, like SciFan or the ISFDB. Good for looking up what authors have done, and seeing series lists. But this one appears to be more open: it gives users editing privileges. You can also ask for a copy of their database. From the few searches I've done, it seems pretty complete and accurate so far (at least for what we're interested in!)

I already added a link to this site on 2003-03-09 - probably worth removing one of them.
