Here you'll find a selection of links to the web pages of fellow TSA-List writers, as well as a few other friends of mine in the cyberspace community, and various other things that I find interesting, useful and/or fun. I hope you find them to be of value to you.
A legal note: Some of these sites contain material which some people will find objectionable, such as strong/offensive language, mature themes & content, and (for you religiously-minded parents out there) questionable theology. Everyone's entitled to their own beliefs, of course, but I think any parent who cares about what their kids do and think should exercise their parental authority and make sure that the content of the stories at these sites is acceptable to them.
There's no porn on these sites -- not that I am aware of, anyway -- but some of these web sites shouldn't be visited by someone under the age of 18 (or whatever the age of adulthood is in your part of the world) without parental supervision. As noted before, exercise discretion. I take no responsibility for the content of these pages. If you're not legally an adult in the country where you're reading this, don't go to these sites without a parent or guardian's supervision or permission. Thank you.

free of objectionable material, as far as I could find, are labeled (Mostly
A podcast, for those of you who are unfamiliar with the term, is a serialized audio program that is distributed over the internet, usually via RSS feed. Translation for non-techies: it's like a radio program you can download and play on your iPod. There is an extraordinarily diverse selection of podcasts out there, on everything from politics to Star Trek to diabetes, but here are some of the best that I've been listening to. All of these can be found on iTunes' podcast directory, or you can subscribe or download individual episodes via their websites. The average length of a typical episode or chapter is listed in parenthesis at the end of each description.
The Babylon Podcast: The last, best hope for fans of J. Michael Straczynski's seminal SF television series, Babylon 5. Fanboy Tim Callender, podcasting diva Summer Brooks and actor/producer Jeffrey Willerth (who was the man inside Ambassador Kosh, as well as the Producer's Associate on B5) interview members of the cast and crew about their experiences on the show and engage in in-depth discussion of the episodes. A must-listen for any B5 fan. (Typical length: 1 hour) (Mostly Harmless)
Escape Pod: Short fiction in the sci-fi, fantasy, and speculative genres, performed by a variety of talented voices from all over the podcasting community. Usually light-hearted, always high quality. Host Steve Eley also offers occasional movie reviews, as well as "flash fiction" stories of 500-1000 words that appear at random intervals between the weekly episodes. Note: Scott tends to be overly aggressive in how he rates the stories for content; an "R" rated story here could find its way onto network television with only minor editing, and even the few "X" rated stories aren't pornographic, or even very explicit. So don't be scared off by the labels on some of the stories, unless you're really hypersensitive about adult-themed content. (Typical length: 30 minutes)
Geek Fu Action Grip: Mur Lafferty -- North Carolina native, freelance writer and game designer, unabashed geek, and the so-called Grande Dame of Podcasting -- offers up commentary, essays and the occasional interview on a wide variety of geek-related subjects. She also puts her fiction on this feed, and given how very good she is, that's reason enough by itself to subscribe. (Typical length: 30 minutes)
How To Succeed In Evil: A serialized audio drama about Edwin Windsor, Evil Efficiency Consultant. He’s like Arthur Andersen for supervillians -- but the problem with supervillians is that they're all too egomaniacal to listen to good advice. Edwin gets so fed up with this state of affairs that he decides to go into business for himself; this results in an efficient, ruthless, and often very funny brand of evil, which is great fun to listen to. (Typical length: 15 minutes)
I Should Be Writing: Mur Lafferty's other podcast, and one of my personal favorites. Mur offers up advice "for wanna-be fiction writers by a wanna-be fiction writer," and interviews published authors, editors and agents about the process of writing and publishing. A very helpful, inspirational show to listen to if you're an aspiring writer, or just don't feel like you're writing as much as you ought to. (Typical length: 20-30 minutes) (Mostly Harmless)
The Kick-Ass Mystic Ninjas: Summer Brooks, sci-fi media geek and owner of the loveliest voice in podcasting, joins forces with reviewer Joe Murphy and editor David Moldawer to discuss classic sci-fi and fantasy books, TV shows and movies. From Alfred Bester's The Demolished Man to the 1980s TV series "Airwolf", the Ninja Masters pull no punches as they dissect, discuss and celebrate the highs and lows of these classics of genre fiction. This is a great podcast to listen to if you're looking to expand your knowledge of the "good old stuff." Of course, some of us would listen to Summer's voice even if she were talking about planting rutabagas. :) (Typical length: 1 hour) (Mostly Harmless)
Seventh Son: In this podcast novel, written and read by J.C. Hutchins, seven strangers are drawn into a government conspiracy where they discover that they are all clones of the same man. Their childhood is a lie, a mental recording of his fourteen years of life before the experiment that created them. Now they're being drawn together and shown the truth about where they came from so that they can help stop a madman from unleashing World War III. Who is this lunatic? The very same man they were cloned from. An excellent, gripping suspense thriller delivered to your podcatcher in a weekly serial format. Not for kids, though, so be forewarned. (Typical length: 30-45 minutes)
The Signal: Articles, interviews, news and music related to Joss Whedon's Firefly and Serenity. The first of the Firefly-related podcasts, and still the best; it won the 2006 People's Choice Podcast Award in the category "Movies and Films", and was nominated for the Parsec Award in the categories "Best Fan Podcast" and "Best Audio Production". (Typical length: 1 hour) (Mostly Harmless)
Slice of Sci-Fi: Podcasting giants Michael R. Mennenga, Evo Terra and Summer Brooks dish out weekly discussion on SF, fantasy and genre news, focusing primarily on current and upcoming events in the world of movies and television. A very funny, high-energy show with great production values, cool interviews, and a healthy dollop of insanity -- usually courtesy of Evo. :) (Typical length: 1 hour) (Mostly Harmless)
The Sonic Society: This podcast is run by a couple of crazy (visionary?) Canadians who believe that now is the perfect time for the rebirth of the old-time radio drama. Not just audiobooks, but radio dramas -- complete with full casts, sound effects, dramatic music, the works. Having heard some of their stuff, I have to admit they just might be on to something here. If you're a Firefly fan, you must check out their original audio drama, Firefly: Old Wounds. It is really amazingly well-done, and it shows the potential that this medium has to breathe new life into an old form of entertainment. (Typical length: 1 hour, with a 30-minute dramatic segment and some other stuff before and after)
Absurd Notions: This is one of the best comic strips currently running on the Web, and it's written and drawn by the TSA List's own Kevin Pease, a.k.a. Cerulean. Follow the story of five twentysomething college grads who have elected to live with the Real World until they can find a better alternative. :-) Smart, well-drawn, and very funny. The strip is currently updating only sporadically, but the archive is still present and well worth reading through if you haven't already. (Mostly Harmless)
Catena: A really adorable comic about a vampish woman who's inherited a very large house, and the collection of misfits who are renting from her -- including a handsome but not-too-bright surfer dude, a wannabe mad scientist who's too much of a slacker to really make any progress toward world domination, a Valley Girl whose sense of fashion and pop culture is permanently stuck in the 1980s, and a tarantula named Mr. Cuddles. The art is fantastic, reminiscent of Disney's best, and the style is warm and funny. (Mostly Harmless)
Dominic Deegan, Oracle for Hire: Dominic is a seer, a person who can see the future. As you might expect, this has made him somewhat cranky. He has made money for years helping the obnoxious residents of a small town with their annoying little problems. But Dominic's life changes dramatically when he receives a visit from a royal knight -- setting a chain of events in motion that will drag Dominic out of his safe, curmudgeonly existence and into a battle for the fate of the world itself. The art is black and white only, and more amateurish than some of the other strips here -- but the characterization and story are among the best I've seen anywhere. Parents should beware the periodic outbursts of graphic violence and Lovecraftian horror, but if you're looking for a great fantasy serial, look no further.
Dungeons and Denizens: Min is a rather scrawny minotaur -- only about seven feet tall -- so he's grateful when he's offered a tech support job at a major dungeon. The only trouble now is dealing with his co-workers, which include a self-congratulating lich (the manager), his gothy, headstrong daughter, an undead dragon with a nasty temper, and a two-headed fire-breathing dog that has a crush on him. Oh, and then there are the heroes who occasionally show up to rob the dungeon, which causes no end of trouble. :) If you like fantasy parodies and D&D in-jokes, this strip is for you. (Mostly Harmless)
El Goonish Shive: This is a fairly young serial comic in the comedy-adventure-drama category. It's also one of the most transformation-intensive comics I've ever seen. :) Elliot is a 17-year-old high school student and a high-ranking member of the Anime Style Martial Arts Dojo (which is an in-joke you either get or you don't). His best friend, Tedd, is a brilliant but introverted mad scientist in training, with unfortunately androgynous features and more than a few weird kinks to his personality. Now mix in TF-guns, aliens living in secret among humans, secret government projects run amok, a pinch of cartoon physics, and all the typical melodrama of high school life, and you have a recipe for a series that is bizzare, touching, surreal, often hilarious, and a lot of fun. Like most serials, it pays to start at the beginning and work your way forward -- Dan Shive's artistic style matures very early on, so you won't have to deal with years' worth of amateurish art before you get to the good stuff. Parents should be forewarned, however, that this strip deals with a number of very grown-up subjects, like bigotry, sexuality and gender roles; as such, I recommend it for teens and adults only, and you may wish to screen its content before allowing your kids to read it.
Errant Story: This is a serial comic by Michael Poe, the creator of the popular and now-completed serial Exploitation Now. In Errant Story Poe takes us to a hardened, jaded fantasy world, where a cynical young half-Elf named Meji is seeking out an ancient power source that she hopes will allow her to achieve world domination ... and finish her senior project for magic school in the bargain. :) Along the way she is accompanied by a handsome young male from a half-Elf community plagued with birth defects, who is searching for a cure for his sister's illness; a fairly unfazeable mercenary with a curious sense of honor, whose reasons for remaining with the group are uncertain; and her familiar, a wise-cracking winged cat who's just along for the ride. A colorful cast of characters, a complex, detailed world, and Poe's beautiful manga-style visuals make this one a winner. (Please note: Like many manga serials, this story contains profanity and a substantial amount of graphic violence, and may incorporate other mature themes as it goes on; as such, this is a strip for adults and older teens, not children. Parents, please use discretion in deciding whether you want to allow your kids to read this strip. There are also a few pictures with nudity in the Art section of the site, but all are clearly labeled.)
Freefall: Another one of my favorite comics. Sam (an ethically challenged alien), Helix (an innocent young robot) and Florence (a Bowman's Wolf, one of the only representatives of her genetically-engineered species) are on a mission to repair their spaceship and head off into the void in a lifestyle of adventure. So far, they're finding that getting off the ground is more involved than they thought... :-) A witty, entertaining strip that's as well-drawn as Absurd Notions, but with a very different style. You won't be disappointed. :-) (Mostly Harmless)
It's Walky!: Easily one of the most entertaining serial comics I've ever seen, "It's Walky!" is the story of a formerly-secret government agency called SEMME (don't ask what it stands for) that is dedicated to fighting the unyielding menace of the Aliens -- who in this case, happen to be little hobbit-sized guys in purple space suits that look suspiciously like Teletubbies. By turns funny, angsty, enthralling and powerful, its lack of consistent tone is actually a strength, giving it an emotional range similar to comedy-dramas like Buffy the Vampire Slayer. This series is over now, so your best bet is to start from the beginning of the archives and then read through -- and don't worry, the art improves dramatically as you get closer to the current strips.
No Rest For The Wicked: One day, the Moon up and disappeared; where it went, or why, none can say. Without the Moon's light to keep them in check at night, monsters, crawling horrors, and other creatures of the dark run rampant throughout the land. But Princess November has much more pressing matters to worry about: she hasn't had a decent sleep in ages. This is an extraordinary manga-style voyage into a world where fairy tales are real, and blend together in interesting and surprising ways. It is in no way appropriate for children -- these are the uncensored versions of the fairy tales, thank you very much -- but for adults and older teens, it is an extraordinary and captivating adventure.
Ozy and Millie: This is, without a doubt, one of the most consistently funny and endearing strips out there -- I'm amazed that it hasn't been syndicated yet. Take a look at the world through the eyes of two children who are frequently a little too philosophical for their own good. Author/artist D.C. Simpson is, by his own confession, a political "lefty", but his droll observations about our culture usually make remarkably good sense. This is one of those strips that can get you thinking without getting preachy (most of the time), and it almost always makes you leave with a smile on your face. The strip currently updates on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. (Mostly Harmless)
Penny and Aggie: There are lots of comics about teenagers out there, but I've never found one that captures the emotional complexities of the high school culture as well as Penny and Aggie. Here you have two beautiful young women -- one wealthy and popular, the other a rebellious social crusader -- who despise each other on the surface but find themselves increasingly entangled in each other's lives in surprising ways. There are no stereotypical heroes or villains here; both Penny and Aggie have their sympathetic traits, as well as their infuriating ones. There is also a huge cast of secondary characters that are increasingly becoming involved in the plot, many of whom are now nearly as well-rounded as the protagonists themselves. Read this one for the true-to-life drama, the gentle humor of human absurdity, and the beautiful artwork by Gisèle Lagacé. (Mostly Harmless)
Questionable Content: Marten is a classic Nice Guy -- well, except that his mom was once the world's most famous porn star. Faye is his roommate, a classic Geek Goddess -- well, except for some major childhood trauma, a wit that would make razor blades look dull and more issues than Time magazine. Dora is an ex-Goth, owner and manager of her own coffee shop, and generally a got-it-together kind of gal -- except that she wants Marten, who's attracted to Faye, who likes Marten back but is afraid of emotional attachment (see above re: issues), and she's much too nice to just steal him from Faye. And then there's Pintsize, the sentient AnthroPC who lives in Marten's apartment, drinks his beer and creeps out his ladyfriends. What happens when you put this group of misfits together? Well, for one thing, a whole lot of indie music references. But also lots and lots of The Funny. This is probably one of my favorite strips out there right now, and I'm not even a big indie music fan. Check it out if you like a good mix of character-driven drama and eye-searing snarky humor.
Sluggy Freelance: Most people who have been on the Net for a few years have at least heard of Sluggy Freelance, which is currently one of the most popular online-only comic strips in the world. However, if you're like me, you may have tried Sluggy and found it hard to get into. There's good reason for this: Its backstory is labyrinthine, its characters bizarre, its plotlines a strange mix of drama, comedy, Sci-Fi and horror -- but it all works, and it works beautifully. Don't worry if you feel lost at first; that's normal, and Sluggy creator Pete Abrams has put together a pretty newbie-friendly guide to ease you in to this twisted little world he's created. In my opinion, the best thing to do is just start at the beginning and work your way forward. It may take you weeks or months to go through the substantial archives, which stretch back to 1997, but if you take the time you'll be delighted and entertained by one of the best serial comics on planet Earth, in any medium.
The Suburban Jungle: A slice-of-life/romantic comedy strip about people who just happen to be animals. Follow wannabe model Tiffany Tiger as she works her way up from obscurity to stardom, all the while dealing with the trials of day jobs, crazy relatives, jealous rivals, and rocky relationships. A fun comic with good artwork, a solid mix of drama and humor, and a large cast of interesting characters. (Mostly Harmless)
The Wotch: Similar in both content and appearance to El Goonish Shive, The Wotch is the story of Anne, a young woman endowed with awesome mystical powers. She's not just a witch, she's The Wotch ... though the true ramifications of that title have yet to be revealed to her. Now, with the help of her friends Robin and Jason, she's learning to control her powers and make her way in the world. Good thing, too, since an extradimensional warlord named Xaos has set his sights not only on Anne, but on our entire world! I've only recently started following this one, but the characters are endearing and there seems to be quite a bit of fantasy and transformation content. The "Mythos Virus" storyline will be particularly entertaining to TF fans.
Bible Gateway: The best overall online Bible I've found to date. While Blue Letter Bible has a lot more study aids, Bible Gateway is focused on providing as many translations as possible in the cleanest, most streamlined manner possible. They have twelve different English translations (well, okay, only eleven for the Old Testament), all fully searchable by chapter and verse or by word search, with all the footnotes and cross-references that appeared in the print version of each translation (if any). What if English isn't your first language? (If that's the case, I'm impressed that you're able to understand my rambling sentences. ;) Not to worry: they also have translations in twenty-one other languages, from French to Arabic to Korean to Tagalog. Some of these languages even have more than one translation available. How's that for variety? Bottom line, if you're in the market for a Bible, or just want to look up a few scripture references and don't have access to one, this is a great place to check out the different options that are available to you. (Mostly Harmless)
Blue Letter Bible: This is one of the coolest tools for inductive Bible study I've ever seen. ("Inductive Study" is a fancy term for trying to determine what the text you're reading meant to the person who wrote it.) It has the complete text of the Bible online -- in ten different translations, including the Latin Vulgate! -- with every single word linked to the original Greek or Hebrew it was translated from. So if you have a word or passage that's confusing you, or for which you'd just like a little more background, you can call up the relevant passage and see all the various meanings that can be applied to those words. This can be a big help in figuring out what the text actually meant to the original authors, and it can also help you recognize spots where translator bias might have caused a shift in the implied meaning from the original text to the English version. You can search by chapter and verse or by phrase, and the site also includes commentaries, devotionals, dictionary aids, study tools, audio and video aids, and other great stuff. (Mostly Harmless)
Vineyard USA: This is the web site for the U.S. division of the Association of Vineyard Churches, the organization to which my church belongs. I didn't grow up in a Vineyard church, but I sought them out because I believe that they have the most balanced, overall common-sensical understanding of the Bible of any of the church organizations I've encountered. (Not to say they're perfect, just the best I've seen. I don't think anybody's going to have a perfect understanding of God and Christianity until Christ returns.) If you're interested in knowing what I believe and where I would back it up in the Scriptures, check out their Statement of Faith -- I agree with it on most points, and all the really important ones. You can also search for a Vineyard church near you, find out about upcoming events, check out a weekly online Bible study or a number of discussion forums, and much more. (Mostly Harmless)
Vineyard Music: Vineyard Music is one of the big reasons why I sought out a Vineyard church when I moved to California. There are a number of different organizations putting out worship music these days, but Vineyard has matured into one of the best -- the albums have good production values, creative and contemporary music that sounds fresh and approachable to modern ears, and lyrics that are firmly grounded in Biblical truth and help draw the listener into truly worshiping God. Here you can find out about what new albums are available and purchase them online. Pay special attention to albums from Vineyard UK and Vineyard Canada -- they've been responsible for some of the best new worship songs to come out in recent years, from any organization. (Mostly Harmless)
Worship Together: This is a huge site devoted to bringing neo-contemporary worship music to the masses. Here you can find worship music from just about everybody, Vineyard or otherwise, and you can purchase both the albums and the written music (in case you want to use the songs in your own church or Bible study). They also offer free MP3s off of hot new albums, interviews with featured worship leaders, a worship webzine, and tons of other cool stuff. (Mostly Harmless)
Stories, Pictures, and Other Fun Stuff
Anthro Magazine: A bimonthly webzine devoted to furry and anthro fiction. Anthro is the brainchild of longtime List member Quentin "Cubist" Long, who together with Michael Bard ran TSAT magazine for five years before ending its run with issue #48. Cubist's primary goal for Anthro is to make it a known source of high-quality furry material, including (but not limited to) stories, art, columns, fact articles, poetry, webcomics, reviews, and whatever else furdom-at-large can come up with. It seems to be garnering more of a following than TSAT did, which hopefully bodes well for its long-term prospects.
The Writings of Brian Eirik Coe: The complete (or nearly so) collection of stories from our furry-eared optometrist. Some of the top achievements here are I Will Know You By Your Eyes, the entire Visionary Saga, and the Winds of Change Round Robin stories, which are some kind of a record in TSA tag-team writing. And no, I don't know what kind of a name Eirik is, either. :-) (Mostly Harmless)
The Buck's Domain: Home of Jon Sleeper, a true pillar of the TSA community and one of the Blind Pig's inner circle. Jon has written some fantastic stories, both in the TBP world and in universes of his own creation, including Winds of Change (WOC), Frost and Fire, and Titanic. He's also contributed to the Metamor Keep universe and the Visionary Saga. And as if all that weren't enough, he has some nifty morphs, and photos from ConFurence 9. (Also some nifty deer pictures.) Is this guy amazing, or what? :-) (Mostly Harmless)
The CIA World Factbook: This site is a godsend for anyone with an interest in geography, social studies or current events. As the intelligence-gathering arm of the United States government, the Central Intelligence Agency has amassed an astonishing quantity of information about every country on Earth -- and they've made a lot of it available to the public. Need to know the birth and death rates in the Central African Republic? What the people of Bahrain do to make money? The governmental structure of the Czech Republic? What political parties are currently in power in Russia? What the pressing environmental issues are in modern Ireland? At this site you can find answers to all those questions and more, and the information is being updated constantly. I wish this site had been around when I was in school... (Mostly Harmless)
Cubist's Stories: A good collection of stories by Quentin "Cubist" Long and several of his co-conspirators, including Michael Bard and Sly Squirrel. Lots of good TBP stories here, plus a wide variety of other tales, including several from the List Transformed setting, which asks the question: How would you react if you got transformed? Cubist's a good writer, and he's chosen some good company for his collaborative efforts, too.
Deranged Kitsune's Homepage: Home of Deranged Kitsune, one of my fellow Metamor Keep collaborators and a good friend. Here you can find all of his stories, or nearly all, as well as the MK stories of our universe coordinator, Christian O'Kane. In addition to the stories, he also has a very impressive collection of quotations, with bon mots for just about every occasion. Good stuff!
Derksen Industries: Home of Bryan Derksen, another one of the TSA giants -- discover Better Living Through World Domination! This site has a little of everything, really: Stories, pictures, and a good selection of links, including one hyperlink to the "Evil Overlord List" web page ... which pretty much tells you all you need to know about the kind of guy Bryan is. ;-) This is also the sharpest, snazziest site I've seen lately, in terms of how it's laid out, but some features are not yet fully functional -- be patient with him, Bryan's a busy man. :-) (Mostly Harmless)
The Desk of J. "Channing" Wells: Here you can find the complete collection of works by husband-and-wife TSA writing team Jeffrey "Channing" and Teresa "Feech" Wells. Feech in particular is so prolific as a writer that I can't hope to read all of her stories, but of those I've read I particularly recommend Natural History, The Promised Land, The Thimble and The Garden (assuming the latter has been posted by the time you read this). As for Channing's work, be sure to check out A Miracle of Degree and his hilarious, madcap, lunatic writing spree known as Mundementia One! [They also have some nifty lemur buttons, as well as a link to the alt.fan.lemurs newsgroup's Frinkquently Asked Questions (yes, that's intentional) -- just look at the MunOne intro page.]
Magus The Fox's Archive: Magus' collection of stories has been reworked with a nifty new interface that is both stylish and functional, without bogging you down in all that Java and Shockwave stuff. He has them organized by transformation type, too, for you picky readers out there. ;-)
The Matthias Zone: Home of TSA writer Charles Matthias, alias MattRat. Here you'll find more of his terrific stories, including his four-zillion-page magnum opus, The Perpetual! You'll also find the list of Metamor Keep character descriptions that was first compiled by Dan D'Alimonte, which Matty has been continually updating; it lists just about every character who has ever appeared in an MK story, and lists what stories they appeared or were mentioned in.
Metamor Keep Main Hall: The official home page for the Metamor Keep story universe. Features lots of MK stories (over 200!), the history of the Keep, lists of characters and authors, and several nifty maps of the Keep and the surrounding lands. (Mostly Harmless)
Michael Bard's Story Page: The co-editor of TSAT Magazine was recently forced to relocate his webpage, and as such much of it is still under construction. Keep checking back, though, 'cause the man has a major gift for storytelling, and his tales will be worth the wait. In the meantime, you can find some of his stuff at Raven's Lair and TSAT...
The Otter's Pond: Home of TSA writer Oren the Otter, a truly talented and prolific author and one of the more recent arrivals at TSA-Talk. His credits include lots of TBP and Metamor Keep stories, as well as two shared story universes: Witch Trial and The Human Extinction Agency. Oren has set himself up a whole little Web community here, hosting the home pages of several of his fellow authors. Nice of him, isn't it? :-) (Mostly Harmless, as far as Oren's own stories are concerned. I can't speak one way or the other for the other writers hosted there.)
Transformation Stories List: An amazingly thorough collection of reviews for virtually any xform-related story or book you can get. Includes a ratings system for types of transformations, quality of writing, etc., etc. Phaedrus and all his contributors deserve muchos kudos for this one. (No, I don't think "kudos" is Spanish, either, but it seems to fit. :-) (Mostly Harmless)
TSAT Magazine: A webzine dedicated to Transformation Stories, Art & Talk (hence the name), TSAT is a very nicely designed site that features TF content in a variety of formats, including stories, comics and artwork. TSAT is ceasing production with issue #48 (October/November 2006), but the back issues will still be available for your reading enjoyment. (Mirror Site)
Wikipedia: This is one of the coolest ideas I've seen recently: an ever-expanding universal encyclopedia to which anybody can add information at any time. Whatever your area of expertise, you can probably find an article in here that could benefit from your knowledge -- and if you can't find an entry, you can create it! The term "wiki" comes from wiki wiki, the Hawaiian term for fast, and it reflects the speed and ease with which entries can be added, edited and expanded. Whether you're looking for information on the music of Bob Dylan, the cast and setting of Babylon 5, or the reproductive cycle of phocid seals, there's plenty of info here to satisfy your curiosity. Probably the best example I've ever seen of the power of the Internet being put to use for the benefit of humanity.
And of course, who could forget...
The Transformation Story Archive: The place where it all started, thanks to List Daddy Thomas Hassan. Stuff is organized by story universe, or type of transformation if there is no established universe. You can also search the stories by author. Stories with adult content are labeled as such, so stick to the ones that don't have such labels and you'll be okay. :-)
More links may be added as I feel
