View Full Version : A request for a *good* sci-fi wiki
2011-Feb-06, 04:52 PM
Well I've searched all over and have yet to find a solid, inter-connected wiki for Niven's works. And so I looked around for some other authors' wiki-like sites or even on wikipedia itself.
It is all sparse, vague, and not updated. Most non-wikipedia sites directly cut and paste entries.
Anyway is it too much to ask for updated data with good article linking? As an example can I get the latest time line for Louis Wu? Why not!? arg.

Wiki's seem to be niche sites. There is Alpha-Memory for Star Trek and Wookieepedia for Star Wars, both of which rarely has any mention of other works.
I will lurk the thread hoping someone can offer better because I'd like to see one too. :)

My ideal setup would track retcons as well. And possibly even quote important passages. But as an example the details of Outsiders in Known Space have evolved over the years, and the old data simply isn't *accurate* anymore. I suppose the effort would be rather monumental, however. As such I'm not inclined to tackle it.
Oh and Solfe - I live not far from you!

Oh.. I loving traveling out your way. I used to go to bar called "Heaven" in the 1990's downtown and now I take my kids to the "Museum of Play". Great town!
