I saw a cool web page that just listed writer's and their personal web sites, with descriptions and links. I would like to see something like that as a resource here. Does anyone here have their own web site of short stories?

philosophical short fiction, fantasy, sci-fi, and other

:rolleyes:

I dont.
I mean, how many people have websites for their stories when people would practically have to make a typo to find it, or look at links.
However, if you're famous this doesnt apply.

I have a website with a lot of links. It's also a bit commercial since I use it to promote my self-published spy stories, written with some friends, that I publish zine-style and sell. I won't put my writing online unless I got paid for it.

I do have blogs, tho. My main blog is http://cyberchocolate.blogspot.com.

There is a list of Authors who post here (http://www.sffworld.com/forums/showthread.php?t=7945) over at the fantasy forum and they link to their sites.

I would have grave doubts about having a website to display my work on, as an unpublished scribbler.....let's be honest, if you think it's good enough that other people want to look at it, then why aren't you trying to get it published? And if you are trying to get published, why offer your work/ideas up to be nicked off the internet in the meantime?!

This is rather different if you are already famous, or if you simply don't ever want to be published, of course!

(Having said that, my partner and I do have a website of our own (www.raggedstaff.com) to display our work on - but it's rather different from the kind you're thinking of! :D)

Intend to one day. Don't want a half hearted site, when it gets done it will be the best I can afford. So many web sites look the same, want mine if I ever get one to be different.

Just a dream anyway... but I can can't I? ;)

I do and I wrote it myself. I need to re-do it again as I get bored and frustrated easily and I also change my mind a lot. If you're really bored and want to read some of my works (definately not my best work, but it's work) you can visit me at http://www.ofgnomesanddwarves.com

I was facinated to see how many writers do have their own web sites. I alos solicited at:

http://www.briareus0.com/webstats/monthly/2004/11/01/index.html

and there were a ton. Maus- really nice site. I like it. In the end it doesnt matter how much you make from, or how many people enjoy, your work. If you enjoy it and are willing to put it out there (or here) thats all that matters. If you can get the money and praise too, well thats a bonus. Love what you do and the rest will follow.

:rolleyes:

As Rocket said, some of them were posted on the authors who post here thread. But, here it is again:

Mine is http://www.garywassner.com

I wish I had more time to keep it always up to date, but I don't. I add to the news area once in a while. But as far as what I am currently working on, I don't update that often enough.

I find that having a website is a good way to gain test readers on my novels. About 90% of my novel readers come through my website.

This way, potential publishers and readers can see a bibliography of my work, links to my published stories, my favorite authors, my blog, my artwork, and anything in general that I want to blather about. Yay! It's fun. I recommend websites for everyone.

P.S. -- Gary Wassner, I believe that my boyfriend and I met you at the World Fantasy convention this year. You held up nicely on that panel about Adults who read Young Adult fiction! I had no idea that you post as GemQuest. I feel like I know you a little bit better.
