Links to the World of Science Fiction and Fantasy
Science fiction and fantasy are more than popular genres, more than collections of short stories and novels. They represent living communities with their own cultures, cliques, and historical realities.
In such company you may find both qualities to admire and foolishness to wink at, but to everyone there is offered a companionship of the mind and a fellowship of the spirit.
If you are new to science fiction and fantasy, let us recommend some of our favorite sources.

by Jane Lindskold
One of our favorite authors, Jane Lindskold has treated the field to a memorable buffet of fantasy worlds, including Changer, Through Wolf's Eyes, Child of a Rainless Year, and most recently Fire Season with David Weber.
Twice weekly, we enjoy her blog entries where the writer's life can be seen for what it is, a real life not unlike many of our own. That said, Jane's work-a-day world is one of ideas, imagination, and a genuine appreciation of her readers.
We encourage you to check in with Wednesday Wanderings and get hooked.
