While not the most-comprehensive list of philatelic links on the Web, we strive to provide a useful list. Sites are chosen because they work, they're in English, and they're not outdated -- either updated often or of interest even if not updated.

Please send new additions, corrections, suggestions, or any comments, to our
Links Editor at linkseditor@virtualstampclub.com.
