An assortment of sites both crucial to the Palahniuk fan and friendly to The Cult
- Will Christopher Baer - The official site for the badass author of "Kiss Me, Judas" and "Penny Dreadful." This site is webmastered by Mirka and I and yes... it kicks ass, as Chris himself posts blogs every week. Check it out!
- Craig Clevenger - Author of "The Contortionist Handbook," best post-Palahniuk I've read yet...
- Stephen Graham Jones - The third leg in The Velvet tripod, Stephen's finally got a website up. Also check him out on The Velvet forum.
- Max Barry - "Jennifer Government" ring a bell? Check out Max's home page with insightful publishing tips for would-be writers. It's one of the funniest authors sites on the web.
- Elmore Leonard - Hands down one of my favorite authors. I've already read about 20 of these guy's novels. He's the master of dialogue. The master of the crime novel. And his website truly rocks.
- Douglas Coupland - Before Chuck Palahniuk, there was Douglas Coupland... and still is.
- Joey Goebel - Official site of Joey Goebel, author of "The Anomalies" and the upcoming "Torture The Artist." I like this dude. Look for more of him on our site soon.
- Amy Hempel - Amy's finally got a website up. It's unofficial, but it's our very own Chixuclub who set it up, so you should definitely check it out.
- William Gibson - Safe to say I've become obsessed with William Gibson out of nowhere. This is William's official site, but you should also check out The Aleph, one of the best fansites for an author I've ever seen.
- Stephen Elliott - Author of the acclaimed "Happy Baby" and 'A Life Without Consequences'. His latest book 'The Adderall Diaries: A Memoir of Moods, Masochism, and Murder' is due September 2009.
- Harry Crews - Official bibliography of one of the most grizzled and badass southern writers ever.
- Jim Goad - The man, the writer... the badass. Jim's site is fucking hysterical and is also updated almost every day. A must see!
- Gabe Hudson - Wanna impeach George Bush? This is as good a site to start as any!
- James Ellroy - My personal favorite author (currently) and author of "L.A. Confidential" and one of the best books I have ever read, "American Tabloid."
- Stephen King - You can't call yourself a "reader" and not have a tender place in your heart for the King...
