It keeps up-to-date with the latest publications, and is a good place to search for books by writers past and present.

IMAGINE FX
This is the website of the fantasy and sci-fi art magazine Imagine FX. I could have included it in the Art section, but include it here because of its specific subject matter.

This is the Science Fiction section of the enormous Internet Movie Database, and lists details of thousands of Science Fiction T.V. series and films. There are cast lists, pictures, brief video clips and details of the films themselves, together with further information on actors and directors. Helpfully, all queries are restricted to the Sci-Fi genre, so you always know where you are with the material.

ORION'S ARM
This is a huge and inventive site, very well presented, easily navigated, and containing enough material about the imagined future universe to keep the visitor occupied for a very long time. Orion's Arm is a scenario "set thousands of years in the future where civilization spans the stars. Godlike ascended intelligences rule vast interstellar empires, and lesser factions seek to carve out their own dominions through intrigue and conquest. Out beyond the edge of civilized space and the human-friendly worlds, adventure awaits those prepared to risk all." As it does those who visit the site!

This is a very simple site which gives you exactly what it says in the title. There are no pictures or clips, just words (bright green on black). The sheer detail is impressive, and if you are a fan of "The X Files" you could spend a long time going through the incredibly complex history of the earth and the aliens as they are portrayed in the TV series and the films.
