dodo headMore Waldrop on the Web

Waldrop is over the Web like dust on a dodo. He's doing okay for a guy without a modem. Or even a computer. Or even a telephone, for Pete's sake.

Here's a real random guide to Howard and stuff about him on the Web. If I've missed some links, go ahead, send me the URLs. Just don't expect prompt service.

Special thanks to Jed Hartman for collecting some of these links, and for editing the Special Waldrop Issue of Strange Horizons.
