Links to Some Other Sites I Like
The Page at Pooh CornerI grew up with Pooh and Christopher Robin and their friends via A. A. Milne's two wonderful books about them, Winnie the Pooh and House at Pooh Corner, supplemented by two related books of poems, When We Were Very Young and Now We Are Six. This site has everything one could ever want to know about the pre-Disney originals as well some material on the Disney versions, and includes an on-going discussion board and links to other related sites.
TIMEBINDERSFor those of the Science Fiction Fan Ilk, here is a central point from which to find out much about the background and status of this increasingly eclectic hobby — or, for some, this Way of Life.
Fancyclopedias I, II, & IIIFancyclopedia II, Dick Eney's project, was the version I borrowed for a while when I first began to get acquainted with fandom in the mid-sixties, and I shall be forever grateful to rich brown (Dr. Gafia himself!) for lending it to me. I discoved it on the Web some time ago and had a link to it here, and it was a delight to rediscover Eney's witty approach to the entries and introductions for the original and Web versions. The link above goes to the new page at The Fanac Fan History Project which covers not only the original Fancyclopedia but also allows access to the Fanny III work in progress.
The Enchanted DuplicatorThis fannish classic — an allegorical pilgrimage to the pinnacle of fannish endeavor, the "perfect fanzine" — is here provided by The Fanac Fan History Project. A couple of earlier versions, including one sponsored by and maintained at a Rutgers University site, have been discontinued. An excellent discussion of the work and its history by Taral Wayne appears on eFanzines.com at eFanzined.com/TED, and I mention that not just because Taral speaks so highly of my constributions to it (blush).
And, speaking of eFanzines...
eFanzines.com This labor of fannish love was launched by Bill Burns on December 7, 2000, and is now, according to Wikipedia, the single largest online distribution point for science fiction fanzines, with hundreds of American and British fanzines and archival materials (such as the Enchanted Duplicator article above) available to read or download at no cost from the site. It recorded its 500,000th visit in December 2008. It was nominated in 2005 for a Hugo Award for "best web site."
Now, after perusing my galleries, if you want to see some of the real Science Fiction and Fantasy art that's available on the Web, follow this link. Whew! (I'm actually listed in there, but while the link will take you back here, it will be in frames.)
