The Tolkien gateway is a marvelous example of what a successful wiki can achieve. It is packed with useful information about the world of Tolkien and has an active bunch of editors. And even better, you can contribute too !

Literature

Al wie "Gij ook, Brutus?" nog vertaalt als
Tu quoque, Brutus ?
heeft zijn Latijn van de pastoor in de sacristie geleerd. De vocatief, jongens en meisjes, maakt dat de correcte vertaling is :
Et tu, Brute ?

Ga heen, en doet er uw voordeel mee.

Feistorama

Literature

I just finished the Riftwar saga by Raymond Feist. It consists of 4 fantasy novels describing a fictional universe featuring the worlds of Midkemia and Kelewan. Human magicians and other creatures on the two planets are able to create rifts through dimensionless space that can connect planets in different solar systems. Midkemia was originally created as an alternative to Dungeons and Dragons, and I recommend the saga to everyone interested in fantasy of this kind.

As most fantasy books, the Riftwar saga got lots of fansites; starting with Crydee.com, named after the city where the first book starts of, which is the official website of Feist. Other fansites include the familytree of the rich character set of the books. The most interesting place to go, is the Elvandar.com website, featuring maps of most continents and places this strange world consists of.
