Links

Introduction

Here you will find a collection of links to sites scattered all over the Internet, on many different topics. The links are grouped by topic. The topics discussed include children, psychology, computers, astronomy, math, science, arts and music, government and criminology, humor and spoofs, and others. It's really quite an eclectic links collection.

To open a link in the same browser window as the links page, left click the link. Then click your browser's "Back" button to return here.

To open a link in a separate window, right-click the link and select "open in new window". Then close that window to return here.

I tend my links garden from time to time, weeding out dead links and adding new ones, so check in often to see what's new.

Have a good journey on the open ocean of The Internet!

The Tolkien Ring

These are web sites of my fellow frequenters of the AIM chat room "jrr tolkien" (private), and members of "The Litter Box" mailing list (by invitation only). (As of January 2003, I am no longer a member of The Litter Box.) If you are a fan of JRR Tolkien and would like to join the group, email a brief letter of self-introduction to one of the members below and ask to join; whether or not they'll let you in is their business.
