TV Tropes
From the website:
Merriam-Webster defines trope as a "figure of speech." For creative writer types, tropes are more about conveying a concept to the audience without needing to spell out all the details.
The wiki is called "TV Tropes" because TV is where we started. Over the course of a few years, our scope has crept out to include other media. Tropes transcend television. They reflect life. Since a lot of art, especially the popular arts, does its best to reflect life, tropes are likely to show up everywhere.

Neal Stephenson - Cryptonomicon
Until the take-down notice arrives, text of Neal Stephenson's "Cryptonomicon" is here. I like this as a searchable repository of quotes from a book I find eminently quotable.

The "five-foot shelf." Or is it the "four-foot shelf?" Let's call it the "n-foot shelf." John Siscoe reminded me of these workmanlike translations of Greek and Latin classics (with original text on the facing page).

Better Book Titles
Since "Classics Illustrated" comics are no more: even more concise, cover image summaries of well-known books! Per Dave Ayer.

NewArk, City of CyberPunk Angels. "Nem mentem el a temetésemre, de videón többször is megnéztem."
The text of Neal Stephenson's "Cryptonomicon" is no longer here, but it's a good Cyberpunk archive.
