Fantasy & S.F.
- Alpha Ralpha Boulevard
- A list of science-fiction writers on the web, with introductory
notes and (not always very full) bibliographies.
- Pages devoted to individual authors.
- A publisher's site, but one of the best on the Web.
- Browse their on-line catalogue, follow their links to related sites
and newsgroups, read about events such as signings... There's a text-only version.
- Based on part of a sub-plot of Philip K. Dick's novel Do Androids
Dream of Electric Sheep.
Runner Ring Homepage
- There are a lot of Blade Runner pages out there. This is one
way to find many of them.
- There's also a fancy, pull-down menus

- An on-line S.F. magazine.
- Science Fiction Weekly
- An on-line science-fiction magazine. Archives, cover-art, etc.
- Babylon 5
- Science fiction television
series. Distinguished by a five-season plot-line - though it has
undergone some rather uncomfortable wrenches due to unforeseen cast
changes (though this is denied, unconvincingly, by its creator). The
scripts can be patchy, some of the characters are less than convincing,
and the special effects slightly cheap looking, expecially at the
beginning - but there's some good acting (especially by the aliens), and
the overall effect is usually very gripping. However, most of the fifth
season was thin and mawkish, and took as long to die as an operatic hero.

- Lurkers Guide to Babylon

television series that manages to be a cult yet unrepeated.
- SF Television-Series

detailed than others, to a small number of mostly major S.F. television
- Star Trek
- I really don't have to introduce this...
- The Capt. James T. Kirk
Sing-a-long Page - offers .au files of the vocal attempts of one of
TV-SF's best-known actors... not for those of a nervous disposition, nor
for music lovers. (This is a mirror site, but the original seems to have

- Third Rock
from the Sun
- Brilliantly funny first two series(despite the appalling, hooting and
squealing studio audience in the second series); reasonably funny third
series; largely dull fourth series (in which all the characters, not just
the Solomons, are kooky, and the point of the thing's been lost).
- 3rd Rock from the Sun
- The official site. I found it messy and difficult to find my way
around, but perhaps it's meant to be a deep metaphor - for life, or love,

- The X-Files
- Although I've
occasionally watched and enjoyed this, its presence here is more for a
friend (hello Judith) than for me.
Picture Galleries and Links
- Maintained by Peter & Elizabeth Tran. Apart from the X-Files
links, they have many useful links to other SF sites (including Babylon
5), as well as links relating to other interests.
- X-Files Resource
- A huge range of X-Files-related links.
- Feminist Science
Fiction, Fantasy, & Utopias
- Pretty much what it says; maintained by Laura Quilter. In science
fiction, as in my other favourite genre, crime fiction, any list of top
writers will feature a very large female presence (well, any halfway
accurate list). Not all would count as feminists, but for those who do -
this is the place to start looking.
