The Awesome List is compiled by John S. Makulowich , Internet Trainer. The Executive Summary for this site says: "Gathered here, from one Internet trainer's viewpoint, are the glory and grandeur of the Internet, the sine qua non of Cyberspace, the main characters in the evolving drama ... I tried to produce a hypertext document that journalists, trainers and speakers could use easily. Also, I hoped to assist those of us asked--usually on short notice--to highlight the value, breadth and depth of the Internet." There are over 120 sites represented with hotlinks covering subjects such as Academic Physician and Scientist, (World) Art Treasures, Electronic Cafe, Federal Government Information, Interactive Frog Dissection Kit, Law Schools & Law Firms, Map Collection, PharmInfoNet, Publishers' Catalogues, Stock Quotes, and much more.
Bookstore Locations around the world This is mainly a list of FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) that contain large lists of bookstores in different areas of the world and the US. If you are visiting an area and want to know what book stores are nearby this would be a great site to browse. Here is a typical entry describing a store in our home town: Corte Madera: Book Passage (51 Tamal Vista Blvd, 415-927-0960). Written up in the 9/21/92 issue of PUBLISHERS WEEKLY. Over 9000 sq. ft. of books, including a 3200-sq.ft. section devoted to mystery and SF and a rare and used book department. "Book Passage's great strength is its travel section. It was the only place in the Bay Area where I was able to locate a guide to freighter travel." The store also carries titles in French, Spanish, and German, and has a cafe in the back. In an attempt to fill the gap left by cutbacks in the California library system, they have recently (6/93) started a (pay) lending library of books, audiocassettes, and travel videocassettes. (Corte Madera is in Marin County, across the Golden Gate Bridge.)
