Useful Zen Links?

The following information concerns books, audio tapes, and links that pertain to Zen. For example, I find information on what is called "Western Zen" to be of interest. After all, every time a religion, philosophy, or discipline moves across cultural lines, it is influenced by those peoples and perspectives. Why should Zen be any different? This page is only intended to act as a starting point and, of course, there is never a guarantee concerning how long a particular link may be active on the Internet. More links are listed in the book upon which this site is base. You are invited to send active links to me and I will consider them for posting. Of course, no recommendations or endorsements are being made here.
