The Shannara Files

[ Created on July 23, 2002 ]

Welcome to The Shannara Files, a fansite dedicated to Terry Brooks' Shannara series. It covers everything from The Sword of Shannara to The Genesis of Shannara. It's all here - desktops, character lists, timelines, and more! So explore the depths of Shannara and feel free to e-mail me to tell me what you think!

March 12, 2009: Uh, no actual updates, sorry about that. Anyway, a few of you may have noticed the site was down for a couple of days - that's been fixed now, though (as you can see), so... feel free to browse again? 8D Hooray for speedy customer service.
January 31, 2009: Wow, with this update I officially have more updates than I did for all of 2008. Oops? Anyway, I've finally, finally added the Angel Fire East character list and timeline. The logical next step, I guess, would be bringing the Running with the Demon and A Knight of the Word character lists up to snuff, because they're pretty bare-boned right now. And then... yeah, I should probably get around to Genesis stuff, huh? Content aside, I've also been thinking of maybe making some wallpapers with quotes on them, so if anyone has a particular quote from the books that they like, I'd love to know (along with any other things you might like to see on the site).
January 17, 2009: Holy cannoli, another update?! And this one is fairly major, too... well, not content-wise, but still, I'm proud(?) to present The Shannara Files' new layout! This one takes images from all three Genesis covers and uses hover menus for easier navigation. As far as I know, it should look alright in all browsers except for Internet Explorer 6.0 - the menu appears at the bottom of the page for some reason, and I don't know how to fix it. (And honestly? If you're still using IE 6.0, you should at the very least upgrade to 7.0, or even better - switch to Firefox! Heh.) In addition, there's a new Armageddon's Children-themed wallpaper for 1280x1024 (standard) and 1440x900 (widescreen), so if you're working at a bigger resolution, you can now finally have a Shannara desktop, haha. But yeah, thank the amazingness that was The Gypsy Morph for kicking me into gear. ;D As always, if you have any questions or comments, please don't hesitate to contact me.
