BBC Bookcase

This brilliant site functions as its name suggests -- like a family's bookcase that represents the varied interests of each reader. The site is a potpourri of literary news, features, and games, and even offers an animated history of books guided by none other than Bill Shakespeare himself. Its editorial offerings are unpretentious yet informative and appeal to avid readers of all genres. From the would-be romance novelist, to the aspiring poet, there's a lot of practical advice here for beginning writers as well. So why not have a spot of tea with some scones, and let the BBC engage your imagination? -- Yahoo review

Ugly People

"The content within the website is intended for immature audiences only. However, we do not take responsibility in the event that this content reaches outside its intended audience. More than likely, will contain material that is sensitive, vulgar and offensive to someone who has nothing better to do... other than to be over-sensitive, upset and offended." -- Thanks to Ramin Tabib


Chief copyboy Steve Miller hosts this edifying and entertaining quarterly zine devoted to the recent dearly departed. Packed with dozens of biographies of folks who took the "you're only here once" philosophy to heart, Goodbye! also features plenty of morbid crowd pleasers. The latest issue pays tribute to pioneering composer Iannis Xenakis, beat poet Gregory Corso, and Glenn Hughes, the Village People biker with the huge handlebar moustache. A section titled Darwinian Events will test your capacity to sympathize, while Deaths by Mayhem covers the "Whoa!...Brutal" department. For some color on the obituary writer's life, check out Mr. Miller's address to the Third Great Obituary Writers Conference, June 3, 2001, in (where else?) Las Vegas. -- Yahoo review

Research Matters at Harvard University

In the laboratories at Harvard, researchers and scientists are "turning artifacts of the imagination into facts of life."

Divided into six categories -- Mind, Body, Society, Earth, Space, and Technology -- the site's in-depth look at innovative research will fascinate and amaze.


This interactive resource offers a vast array of tools designed to "make history make sense." The database of over 400 articles is searchable by period and theme so you can get an overview of the history of painting from cave art to 18th-century British watercolours, or zero in on the Napoleonic wars. Take one of the over 200 tours to explore themes and movements throughout time, or choose among some 300 timelines to gain a broader perspective of historical events. Once you've learned all there is to know, join the History Club and post your own essays, or test your smarts with a round of Whizz Quizz, an online competition staged every hour. -- Yahoo review
