What's New






There are much better places to find links to pages of useful SF resources and so on. So I thought instead I might put some random links to places I tend to look at on the web in search of serendipity.

Button The very best regular writing on parenting anywhere in the world can be found weekdays in Salon. Why this is, I have no idea. You do not have to be a mother to enjoy these articles. (I am inexplicably reminded of Tom Robinson here, calling out to the audience "I just want to reassure you that you are allowed to sing along to the chorus even if you're not... glad.")

Suddenly, Salon has changed the name of Mothers Who Think to Life. They claim that the content won't change, but I'm suspicious. And, hey, I liked the way that the old site pandered exactly to me.

Button I very, very much hate the first working day of the week, which for me is Tuesday. So as a treat, the first thing I do in the morning, while drinking my grande latte and cursing my intray, is read the previous Friday's Need to Know. Totally essential, but how do they know so much about British SF fandom? Is this Langford in disguise? For example, last week's column had a reference to Aliens Stole My Handbag.

Button Bill Burns has set up an online repository specifically for fanzines. He has many fanzines online there in .pdf format (you'll need the free Adobe Acrobat Reader), and links to many other online fanzine related sites.
