The great strength of the Internet lies in the (hyper) link, the next station in the search for information. Links will get you further, if you don’t have them, you may come across a missing link.
The DOS Amigos Homepage also has links. An ever-growing collection of references to information about (guitar) music, writing and other subjects.
The internet is quite global and finding interesting guitar links is not easy. That’s why we’ve selected a few and will update the page if we come across something new. Click the link to jump to the page.

With regard to writing and Fantasy you can find a lot on the Internet. On this page I am building a gradually growing collection of links.
Marion Zimmer Bradley’s Literary Works Trust
The Homepage of the Trust for the Heirs of Marin Zimmer Bradley (1930 -1999). This fantasy writer is best known to me for her Avalon books, in which she presents her own version of the Arthurian legends.
Ursula Leguin’s Web Site
The Homepage of late fantasy writer Ursula Leguin. Her Earthsea books were a great example for me, in which she manages to explain a lot of wisdom in a very intuitive storytelling style. After reading Ged’s adventures, I started thinking about writing fantasy myself. Earthsea was not the only thing she wrote, she published alongside Fantasy, SF stories and poetry.
