While I'd seen Sci-Fi Lists during early days of Variety SF, I had by & large forgotten this site till I learnt recently that Variety SF is now listed among its Recommended Links. Now after spending a while at the site, I find it an excellent resource for sf fans:
- Looking for genre classics? There are dynamic all-time Top 100 lists of novels, short fiction, movies, & more. One of these days, I'll probably do a post on his short fiction list the way I did for William G Contento's Top 10 Most Reprinted Stories. Great resource to look up fiction worth spending time reading.
- Locate fiction by theme or era.
- His Recommended Links also appears to include online sources of fiction I wasn't aware of. But I haven't really explored this section in detail.
- My own rankings of all-time short fiction & novels. Sadly, neither of these two lists has been updated for at least 6 months & many entries of online stories there do not include download links. A long pending update - not sure when I will be able to touch them, but I'll post a note when I do update.
- Variety SF's by theme or by year/decade/century search for stories. And related feeds (yes, you can subscribe to a feed that will pick up only stories involving adventures on moon, or snoring, robots, published since the year 2000, ... - hundreds of criteria).
