Hellfire and damnation! "Roynish" isn't in my dictionary!
Listed alphabetically. Dictionary websites first, then the spate of sites Yahoo can dig up on Stephen R. Donaldson.
Dictionary.com - Probably the most complete free online dictionary/thesaurus available.
Merriam-Webster Online - Offers a free online dictionary and the unabridged Merriam-Webster for a subscription fee. Also has a thesaurus.
The Oxford English Dictionary - The most comprehensive, complete, definitive, thorough English-language dictionary available. Not available for free online, but check your local library. Everyone should flip through its pages at least once.
Stephen R. Donaldson - Official Website - Donalson's official site, with commentary about his books, information on the upcoming Third Chronicles and a form to submit questions to Donaldson, who answers as time permits with good-natured humor.
Barnes and Noble - The search results for The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant from bn.com.
The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant in Limerick Form - The ultimate act of condensing any work is to turn it into a limerick. Very well done.
Driving, er, Deconstructing Thomas Covenant - Lots of people complain bitterly about Thomas Covenant. The page's author lists in a mini-rant what he believes folks should keep in mind when picking up the Chronicles.
Fantasy Bedtime Hour - Like the subtitle says, "Two girls in bed, ill-equipped to handle fantasy novel concepts...discuss Lord Foul's Bane." A free public-access chanel in San Francisco airs new eipsodes a few times a month, and you can see them on the web here. Ameturish production values, sophomoric humor, deliberate misinterpretation and literalism, but funny for those same reasons. Check out, especially, episode 27 in which Donaldson appears as a guest.
Fenestering Through Donaldson - A messageboard devoted to The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant. Smaller than the one attached to Kevinswatch.com.
Games Fans Play - An amusing compilation of fantasy- and science fiction-related games, culminating at the bottom of the page with Clench Racing, a game based on, well, a word that needs no introduction if you've read the First Chronicles.
Gap Review - Is the quality of their khakis declining; are they not as hip as they were in the 90s? No, actually, it's a long, involved review (that contains, beware, spoilers) of Donaldson's science fiction series, The Gap Into....
Kent State University Donaldson Collection - This would creep me out if I were an extant writer: Kent State has an extensive collection of drafts and final versions of various of Donaldson's works. The site lists the university's holdings and has a short biography.
Kevin's Watch - A website devoted to the Chronicles containing various and sundry related information, cover scans and a bit of humor. Attached to it is an active messageboard for readers of any or all of Donaldson's books divided by category (The Chronicles, The Gap, Mordant's Need, etc.).
The Land: A Tribute to Stephen R. Donaldson - The site contains excerpts from the books and musings on various topics, including commentary on and examples of obscure words. Perhaps the largest Chronicles site around.
Lord Foul's Bane at booktour.com - Booktour is a site devoted to scans of manuscripts. This page has several scans of the first few pages of Lord Foul's Bane.
The Palace Chat Transcript - A chat transcript from a conversation with Donaldson in 1997. A list of related links is also found on the same site.
Stephen R. Donaldson: Do You Believe? - An article discussing mainly the Chronicles, but also describing other Donaldson books. Makes some good observations and contains a few links to other people's reactions to the books.
Thomas Covenant Worship - A Swedish fantasy aficionado has compiled a list of names used in the Chronicles and their (often religion-based) sources. I also think that's where the "worship" angle comes from: that the names have religious derivations.
