MY LIMITED BOOKMARKS #4
Here is a list of my limited bookmarks--some are mystery-related, some are not. Since you can construct a psychological profile on anybody by looking at his/her book case, record rack or browser bookmarks, I don't dare to show you all my bookmarks. Now that I write a monthly column on the mystery scene in cyberspace for Hayakawa's Mystery Magazine, a Japanese magazine with stories, reviews, columns, photos and other interesting things, I frequently visit these following sites.
- The Case----Thanks for a link to The Gumshoe Site

There are four issues of Charlie Chan Mystery Magazine published by Renown Publications between November 1973 and August 1974.

The titles of the four novellas are "Walk Softy, Strangler," "The Silent Corpse," "The Temple of the golden Hoard," and "The Pawns of Death."

[in Japanese--please select Japanese (Auto-Detect) from your Netscape Navigator's Options/Document Encoding menu]
My fairly reliable Internet service privider. You can find my monthly ranking among my fellow users of NSKnet.
- Premiere Magazine
- The Internet Movie Database
- USA Today
- TIME magazine
- ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY
- The Film 100
This site ranks the one hundred most influential people in the history of film.
Sorry, I'm not allowed to make a link to this site, since the Japanese obscene law is as unclear as the new Communications Bill in USA, but its URL is: [http://www.playboy.com/], in case you don't know yet. I think you may get disappointed -- because you cannot read any stories by Lawrence Block, Donald Westlake, Ray Bradbury, Henry Slesar or other "Playboy" writers on this site.
- The White House
Probably it is the only way to break into the White House and speak up -- legally. Beware of the First Dog!
