Very powerful tool! -- Thanks to Zara Houshmand
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
"The content within the UglyPeople.com 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, UglyPeople.com
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
at Harvard University
In the laboratories at Harvard, researchers and scientists are "turning
artifacts of the imagination into facts of life." This site offers
a peek into these labs, and allows you to read about the research as it
happens, whether it's the latest news on medical treatment, technological
advances, or space exploration. 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
