Vinge, Neil Gaiman, Lemony Snicket, and Francesca Lia Block; the Sandman site is the only permanent one, and the other three just have the old site inserted for revamp later); I have my book collection linked, and then three pages about my reading habits: Books I've Read, Books I'm Currently Reading, and my huge To-Read List. I will come back and do the fansites proper when I have more time.

I redesigned it today with a less loud photo, though I'm still unsure of whether I like the design with the arrows and crap. Comment if you want, but definitely read stuff on it!
