I’m going to attempt to begin a tradition here. I’m not sure how often this will come about, but I’ll try to accomplish the task somewhat regularly. Thus, I give you Geek Peeks. I’ll be starting with a couple of links I have just run across that play directly at my love of Science Fiction and Fantasy literature, movies, and television programming.
Write Your Name in Elvish in Ten Minutes – this site is dedicated to providing you with all the information you need to write your name in J.R.R. Tokiens’ Elvish writing. I guess this could really be useful if you’re trying to come up with a fun new way of signing your name. I enjoyed this site primarily because I’m a huge Tolkien fan, and I am amazed at the man’s accomplishment of creating languages.
Jeff Russell’s STARSHIP DIMENSIONS – is one of the coolest sites I’ve seen in a while. According to the site’s description, it is “…intended to allow science fiction fans to get an impression of the true scale of their favorite science fiction spacecraft by being able to compare ships across genres, as well as being able to compare them with contemporary objects with which they are probably familiar.” An inordinate amount of effort was made in creating this site, and if your a fan of the genre, you could spend an awful lot of time here.
