Internet resources

 

Elektronnaia biblioteka Al'debaran (Comprehensive universal--both Russian and non-Russian--digital library of literature)

Kino-Teatr (In comparison with another important Russian film resource "Entsiklopediia otechestvennogo kino. Rossiia/SSSR/SNG," this site is more focused on contemporary (though historical materials are included) films, much more comprehensive covering film and theater worldwide, and more news-oriented).

Entsiklopediia otechestvennogo kino. Rossiia/SSSR/SNG (Originally the online version of the 7-volume seminal Russian film encyclopedia Noveishaia istoriia otechestvennogo kino, 1986-2000. Now it is an independent online film encyclopedia of Russia and SNG) 

Liudi (Chronologically comprehensive universal--both Russian and non-Russian--biography resource. It goes much beyond a single-article-per-person biography: it aggregates items of different types--photos, portraits, interviews, videos, etc--and from different sources on individuals. The resource is not particularly scholary, but may be a good start for any biographical search.) 

Akunin.Net (Site of Akunin readers' reviews. Readers post their reviews)

Boris Akunin (Official Akunin website in English with a thin layer of information about him and his works)

Fandorin (Deeply involved website--owned by two named Andrei and Sasha (Aliks) Antonenko--providing analysis and useful information on many aspects of Akunin's novels)

Istoriko-khudozhestennyi muzeichik imeni E.P. Fandorina (Though created by a separate person, it could be seen as a section of the website "Fandorin" which runs exhibitions on a variety of aspects of Akunin's works and the detective hero Fandorin)

Russkaia fantastika (One of the oldest website on the genre "fantasy." It deals just Russian fantasy)

Laboratoriia fantastiki (Comprehensive informational website on the genre "fantasy" covering both Russian and non-Russian)
