I know some of the authors who've been interviewed here recently have excellent sites. For example, we'll have <http://www.darkecho.com/JohnShirley/> John Shirley up soon. For the aspiring author, one meaty site is <http://www.authorlink.com/> with extensive publishing news and a manuscript showcase service. Today they have a headline up about phony agents who charge a reading fee: US Postal Inspectors Arrest Woodside Literary Agents For Mail Fraud > The warrant contends that none of the writers who paid for Woodside's > services have ever been published, nor have they received any > promotional information, marketing evaluations, critiques of their > work or information regarding potential publishers. Leonard and > Sprachman operated offices in both New York and Florida, but > mainly used the Internet to entice unsuspecting writers. Feh. What a mean-spirited little con game.

They finally caught up with Woodside? It's about time!

From the Net: Just found your site. Very interesting place. And, since you've asked for recommendations of author's sites, I'd like to recommend this one (he said in the spirit of shameless self-promotion): http://www.csonline.net/rsilvis With my thanks and best wishes, Randall Silvis

A powerful, enjoyable discovery for me this year has been the Lew Griffin novels of James Sallis--call them pomo mysteries for lack of a better word. . . . A great intro to Sallis (who's long been pals with the likes of Michael Moorcock and other "edge" fictioneers) is is homepage and the interviews and articles one will find therein. Chief among them is Ian Sinclair's overview of Sallis's work originally published in "The London Review of Books." Sallis is an American, but it's frequently the Europeans who point out to us our better writers. http://www.btinternet.com/~richnabi/index.html Also, because I'm an oldtime culture vulture, I've found "The Arts & Letters Daily" to be a wonderful resource for collecting serious articles about books, writing, philosophy, music, criticism, etc., from a wide variety of sources: http://cybereditions.com/aldaily/

There are two I'd recommend, and both quite different. 1.)"Small Towns" is about a book on typical small towns with charming photos and quotes from small town people; but best of all, it links to a site that offers almost private writing workshops (6 max) at a mountain retreat; and has free writing tips each month. book: http://www.springtimewriters.com/smalltw.htm workshops: http://www.springtimewriters.com 2.) Page One This site has an interview each month of an author that not only talks about the book, but how they did it. good hints. Neat quotes from actual "page one" of new books. can get a free email newsletter. I think it's: http://www.pageone.com Thanks and good luck, Cathy For quickest response, please email me at: ColoradoCathy@Yahoo.com
