Louisa May Alcott

Check out this great site on Louisa May Alcott which was created to accompany a PBS documentary on her life.  The site offers information on her life, times and works as well as two image galleries filled with historical photographs.  My favorite is in the second gallery and features the sistes of Little Women as manga superheroes.  Go Jo!

Fairy Tale Site


FairyTalesCollection.com is a site that offers biographical information on the authors of fairy tales as well as featured stories from their writing.  I adored fairy tales as a child, which a strong preference for the Grimm brothers rather than Hans Christian Andersen.  Unfortunately, the Grimm section is still under construction, but hopefully the gore of the Grimm stories will soon fill the pages.  And why is Mark Twain listed?  I never considered him an author of fairy tales.  Is my Twain reading too limited?
