The aim of this site is to point you to government information resources that will help you add realistic details to the stories you write. Clicking on the titles below will take you to a list of resources in that area.

You may also wish to use the search box in the upper right hand corner of this page or explore the tag cloud.

As you can tell, I still need to finish the appendices, but all of the individual annotations are done and I think this site is ready to serve most writers. Please check out a section that looks interesting. If you like it, tell your friends, especially fiction writers.  I’d also be grateful if you’d use the stars at the bottom of a resource to rate its usefulness. If you don’t think it will be useful to fiction writers, please let me know why.
