Blogs & Authors
- My dear friend and fellow author. I really like her website, and not simply because I designed it.
Stephen R. Donaldson - One of my favorite writers, creator of Thomas Covenant.
Suburban Vampire - The blog of my friend C. E. Karp. She is kind and funny.
Taliesin Meets The Vampires - Easily the most exhaustive review site for vampire movies, t.v. shows, novels, etc.
George R.R.Martin - If you love epic fantasy, then you should definitely check out A Song of Ice and Fire (unless of course you already have...)
Be Heard and Be Trusted - The personal blog/website of a friend who tirelessly tries to help people achieve their hopes and ambitions, as well as heal personal wounds.
The_Detective - A local (Los Angeles) blog of my friend Spencer Cotter. We go to many of the same plays.
Resources of Interest
TVTropes - Slightly misnamed because this site lists and explains tropes (memes, elements, etc.) in all kinds of storytelling not just television.
Goodreads - A wonderful social networking site dedicated to readers and reading.
Create Space - Amazon.com's self-publishing service. Methinks this will increasingly be the wave of the future, not least for "trying out" the works of new authors.
Lulu - Another major resource for self-publishing/publishing on demand. For free.
Samuel French, Inc. - The premier publisher of stage plays in the United States.
Absolute Write Water Cooler - Message board for writers by writers and all about...well, pretty much everything really.
Wikipedia - Odds are, you already know what this is, i.e. an online excyclopedia. Not authoratative by any means but a nifty reference guide nonetheless.
Morrigan Books - A relatively new publishing house based on the web and specializing in some kinds of dark fantasy.
Vampire's Kiss - A growing Facebook group for all fans of the undead
Babylon - You can get instant translations here for most common modern languages.
Latest Email Hoaxes, etc. - Such a useful thing on the net!
Factcheck - As Gregory House once noted "Everyone lies" but it really helps to find out what the lies are.
Fun and Silliness
The Hillywood Show! Home page of a pair of extremely talented sisters, creators of many a delightful parody video. Cannot recommend them highly enough!
MONSTAAH - Maximum Observation and/or Nullification of Supernatural Terrors Autonomous Agents Headquarters
Vlogbrothers - John and Hank Green, writer and musician, offer both humor and insight in startling, lovely ways.
How It Should Have Ended - Exactly what it sounds like. Animated versions of how many famous films maybe should have ended.
FilmMetro where you can find screenings for FREE MOVIES!
LOL Cats - Frankly, one of the funniest websites on the web. If you love felines (as I do) and like a good laugh, please take a gander here.
Cthulhu/Palin in 2012! - Somehow, this makes sooooo much sense.
Bert is EVIL - It is true. The beloved muppet is so much more than Ernie's grouchy roommate. Be warned this site contains a glimpse of Hell-on-Earth.
Evil Overlord List - A classic list of what villains should not do (yet all-too-often are their SOP). I very nearly put this among Sources of Interest above.
