Stephen Palmer (stephenpalmer.net) [Updated 01-Oct-2001]
"This is the website of British SF author Stephen Palmer, including extracts from his novels, graphics, news, and more! (Including music.)" The entry page is all graphic images, so if you don't have graphics enabled you'll do a certain amount of blind jumping. The first few items are sample chapters and book reviews. There's some interesting stuff here if you go exploring, for example the 6th link (from the main page) takes you to "The Naming of Things: ".. You can hang alot of baggage on a name. A character called, say, Gothmorrog is likely to be a bit of a baddie, whereas Melliandra is more likely to be a sympathetic, 'goodie' sort of a character. Also, following many traditions, names ending in -a tend to belong to women. This is a tradition that is fun to subvert..." (Stephen Palmer) [Updated Oct 2001]
Mervyn Peake Fan Page (levity.com)
(Robert Daeley, Christopher D. Ritter)
Clifford A. Pickover's Home Page (pickover.com) [Updated 01-Oct-2001]
"My primary interest is finding new ways to continually expand creativity by melding art, science, mathematics and other seemingly-disparate areas of human endeavor. I seek not only to expand the mind, but to shatter it." It has lots of strange imagery, including the "Alien Image of the Week," and various puzzles and computer art. (Clifford A. Pickover) [Updated Oct 2001]
Nicholas Pollotta Home Page (nickpollotta.com) [Updated 06-Oct-2001]
"Nicholas Pollotta is a best selling novelist specializing in Science Fiction, and Military/Adventure. A former stand-up comic, inorganic chemist, high security courier and martial arts instructor, he currently resides in northern Illinois with his beautiful wife Melissa Pollotta, their joint collection of 14,000 books, and two slightly demented cats." "Site contains: sample chapters from forthcoming SF and Military novels, bibliography, links to writing resources, and downloadable files on How to write fiction, Submission tactics for fiction, and more." (Nicholas Pollotta) [Updated Oct 2001]
Arthur Porges Fan Site (fortunecity.co.uk)
"A fan tribute site to the SF author Arthur Porges, who was a very prolific contributor of short fiction to the SF magazines of the 50's and 60's. This site contains a bibliography and some thoughts on his work." (Richard Simms)
Jerry Pournelle's web site (jerrypournelle.com) [New 06-Oct-2001]
Updated regularly. [added Oct 2001] [New 06-Oct-2001]
Jerry Pournelle: Chronology of Jerry Pournelle's Future History (chronology.org) [Updated 26-Sep-2001]
"Jerry Pournelle is perhaps the science fiction author most devoted to history and politics. His Future History began, not as a series of stories which he later linked together, but as his projections of a possible future consistent with "valid principles" of sociology and politics. This led to a "future" which is perhaps more pessimistic than the classic SF futures of Heinlein, Asimov, and Niven. Yet within this context he writes of those who triumph past intimidating odds, struggling for the survival of the human race... My timeline of Pournelle's future history is both a chronicle of events and a chronicle of sociology. In particular, Jerry Pournelle's twenty-first century is full of political twists that no one could believe (unless he or she knew what the twentieth century had seen, of course)." (Larry King)
ML's Unofficial Tim Powers Web Page (acd.net)
"I have waited long enough for someone to give Tim Powers his proper due. Looking on the WWW, I can only find a few scattered reviews of the man who was nominated for the Nebula, received the Apollo Prix, the Wold Fantasy Award winner one year and nominee the next, and was twice granted he and Philip K. Dick Memorial Award. When science fiction, dark horror, or whatever you call the brilliance of Tim Powers works lands an author in the pages of Barlowe's Guide to Extra-Terrestrial, he should have at least a few unofficial web sites." (ML)
The Works Of Tim Powers (easynet.co.uk)
"This site is really the result of my investigations into the publishing history of the works of Tim Powers. If, like me, you are interested in collecting his various works, this site should prove an excellent resource in your search. If, on the other hand, you have only just discovered this wonderful author, this site will hopefully point you further down a road paved with some of the best science fiction and fantasy books you're ever likely to read." (John Berlyne)
The Anubis Gates: A Fan Page for Tim Powers (earthlink.net)
(Ellen Endebrock)
Tim Powers: Stranger Tides (netcom.com) [Updated 01-Oct-2001]

"Confifting of that part of thee WORLDE WIDE WEBB which contains COMMENTARIES and EXPLICATIONS upon the MULTITUDINOUS WORKS of MISTER TERENCE PRATCHETT ESQUIRE, scribe of thysse parifh. AND also many JESTS and WITTICISMS contributed by thee GOOD FOLKE of that ASSEMBLY known as ALT.FAN.PRATCHETT."
