...where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say.
My page may be fine (or then again it may not), but there are
others far finer. Here is a crossroads, an embarking station for
a number of other sites.
- Lurker's Guide to
B5: The center of all the fandom. The most
comprehensive guide on Babylon 5 you are ever going to
find or need, with information on episodes, the famous
'JMS speaks' sections, and many, many more links.
Spoiler Page: What the Lurker's Guide is for the
episodes that have aired, the Spoiler Page is for the
episode that haven't yet. Every future episode as spoiled
as possible, and after it airs, excellent synopses of
them as well.
- The John and Delenn
Site: For every John & Delenn fan out there, this
site is a 'must'. But all the rest of us will still enjoy
the many excellent analyses that can be found there..
Idea Website: Here you can find Blind Man's hilarious
Useless Ideas. Clickety-click and roll on the floor
Online: My favourite Tolkien website this includes
news from the movies, as well as a gallery of images,
chapter-by-chapter commentary from the "Tolkien
Virgin" (a first-time reader of the book), and much
Another site with wide Tolkien content.
From Valinorean all the way to the Black Speech of
Mordor, everything you ever wanted to know about
- The LOTR movie
site: An excellent to use as a start for your search
for info concerning the Tolkien movies currently under
Tolkien Newsgroups "Lord of the Rings" E-text:
The site for the (often hilarious) parody of the 'Lord of
the Rings', a parody I've also contributed to!
- Odd Lots:
The site of one of my favourite fanfic authors, Philosopher at
Large. A little bit of everything in it -- criticism, parodies,
original poetry and artwork as well as works of Tolkien fan-fiction --
the centerpiece of this collection is probably The Leithian Script.
Go see it!
is the most comprehensive fan-fiction site any Harry Potter fan could hope to find! Divided into four sections, for novel-length, romantic, humorous or dark fics, it caters for every and any taste!
Gathering to itself all the fics that more... 'respectable' sites would refuse, Restricted Section
is an archive for HP stories rated NC-17 and above.
- Station 8: One
of the fandom's two centers. The most important aspect is
arguably the comment
room - which everyone should visit atleast once (if
only to say hi!)- though here you can also find the
famous Ask Greg section, as well as an archive of sounds,
pictures and videos.
- Gargoyles Fan
Website: The second and largest center of the fandom.
Here you can find more information on sites and the show,
the TGS stories,
and most important of all, the Fan Fiction
Archive housing hundreds of stories.
Fan Registry: If you are a Gargoyles fan, step this
way! Tell a little about yourself and learn about others
who share the same interests.
- Baf's Guide
to the Interactive Fiction Archive: Just what the
title says, this place is probably one of the best places
possible, to start your search concerning any game ever
written, be it reviews or gamefiles you are searching for.
- XYZZYnews: An
online magazine for Interactive Fiction enthusiasts, this
site also houses the famous XYZZY awards. Another "must".
interactive fiction links: As the name suggests, a
collection of Interactive Fiction links. If you are a
author, designer, reviewer or beta-tester of IF, then
chances are this page has a link leading to your site. It
even has a link to my own site - and I didn't even
have to bribe them! ;-)
- El Page del Adam: Adam
Cadre is generally considered one of the best writers of
Interactive Fiction, his works including stories as
diverse in content and style as Photopia, I-0,
Shrapnel, and Varicella.
Zarf (aka Andrew Plotkin) is another indisputable Master
in the Interactive Fiction community. His works include
the amazing Spider and the Web, the poetic The
Space Under the Window, the surrealistic So Far
and quite a few others... He's also the creator of the
Glulx platform which managed to remove many of the
limitations of the Z-machine and will possibly replace it.
Short's Interactive Fiction Page: If there's a Holy
Trinity of IF writers, then Emily Short is definitely its
third (and quite promising) member. One of my favourite
writers, her works (which include Galatea, Metamorphoses
and Pytho's Mask) tend to provide the best
possible argument in favour of the simulationist approach
6 - A Design system for Interactive Fiction: The page
of Graham Nelson concerning Inform v.6, the programming
language which made possible a lot of what exists in the
IF community nowadays, and the most popular design system
nowadays alongside TADS.
- Gull: A
Beginner's Guide to Glulx Inform, this page by Adam Cadre
is the best possible introduction to the language. You
want to learn Glulx - you go here. Simple as that.

with a bright soul underneath it's harsh exterior... this is the
one! UPDATES DAILY.

Pages of Friends
Words fail to describe the... phenomenon
that is Jewel Faulkner, another of my online friends. Her
site's name should warn you a bit about the kind of
personality she has. And let's not even refer to the
- A picture page: This is the page of Stavroula Kampouridou -- another one of my close friends. Once in Athens, now in Stanford, and very soon at the top of the world. :-)
