Tribute to My Vanity
A message from the curator:
I review this site with the latest version of the Netscape Navigator. If you're not using Netscape, the pages probably look even more funky than I intended...
Technically, a lot of these are Ellison's awards too, as I am certain I wouldn't have got some of them if I had been doing a web page for, say, John Gorman...
Ellison got a shopping-cart full of Hugos, I got this. Go figure. This
award, from The Point, supposedly
means this page is in the top 5 percent of pages on the web.
Magellan has chosen Webderland
as a 3-Star Site. A very nice review of the site can be found online
Netscape's Open Directory has Webderland
as a Cool Site in their Harlan
Netwatch runs a number
of "top ten" site lists, one of which is for Science
Fiction. I was lucky enough to be included.
Ben and Jesse's Soup Kitchen
of the Bizarre awarded Webderland their ICP Award. What does that
mean? You tell me...
The Wave of the Day
for some day in December 1995 was Ellison Webderland. I was on vacation
at the time, but I'm sure my Webmaster was pleased at the way it must
have whacked his bandwidth...
BobaWorld has Webderland on their cool sites page. Okay, so there are a jillion sites there, so what's your point?
In fact, the Bobaworld guy picked this as oneof his Kool Sites of the
day. Sorry for the non-links, but Bobaworld has apparently dropped off
my rader. Geez, maybe I should have shrunk that GIF a little...
When Netcom established their 200th POP (point of presence),they posted a list of 200 great POP Culture sites. Webderland was found worthy. Jesus wept.
Cinescape's Web Magazine, a NUKETVScape, picked me for one of their four NUKE Hot Sites for their 10/5/95 edition. As of 10/14/95 (when I wrote this), it was still there. (Note: as of 06/01/97, it wasn't.)
Paul Riddell was kind enough to include Webderland in the Cyber section of The Met, Dallas's arts and entertainment weekly. There was an online versionof the Webderland review available on The Met's web site. If anyone can FIND the web site, let me know. It used to be at http://themet.computek.net, but it seems to have disappeared.
Webderland was recently added to many link pages on The Dark Side of the Web, the premiere Dark/Gothic/Dressing Like Someone fromThe Cure/Punk/Whatever Else You've Got page on the Net.
CentreSquare's District Map contains a section on literature with a link to Weberland.
Horizon, the SF/Fantasy Cyberzine, has included Webderland as one
of their "Hot Spots".
Stacey's Web Designs was good enough to give Webderland a True Style
HarlanEllison.com is under new management. Thank you to Rick Wyatt for his many years of dutiful stewardship of this site.
