As much as my academic history has been steeped in research, I still cannot imagine how challenging it was to write historical fiction before the Internet. Here are just a few of the online resources I love, even if they don't directly apply to my current writing:
A Celebration of Women Writers (University of Pennsylvania)
Godey's Lady Book (University of Vermont)
Literary Resources - Victorian British (Rutgers University)
The Dictionary of Victorian London (Lee Jackson)

The Victorian Web (George Landow)
