The Aesop Fables website has moved to its domain AesopFables.com
Yes this is the same Aesop Fables you've known and loved for the past 11+ years. You can now get to us from AesopFables.com, .net or .org so please bookmark that site and not pacificnet.net/~johnr/aesop/. I have retained this site for now as a jump spot to get to the fables.
This site pacificnet.net/~johnr/aesop/ has been deprecated because the ISP pacificnet was sold to some Canadian company and they will not allow cgi/perl to run on it now. Indeed the site relies on the program aesop1.cgi to display fables.
As of September 2005 there were over 4000 links to this site, that number has been severely reduced in the past year because of the isp's unconscionable and careless mis-configuration ie: not working without the www and other broken website attributes.
If you landed on this page while clicking on a link to a fable that is because I have redirected all errors to here.

Our online collection of Aesop's Fables includes a
total of 656+ Fables, indexed in table format, with morals listed. There are many more on the way. Most
were translated into English by Rev. George Fyler Townsend (1814-1900) and Ambrose Bierce (1842-1914)
the rest are from Jean De La Fontaine in French and translated to English by several good internet souls.
Nearly as old as the Olympics, bigger than Dinosaur, older than the Titanic, more complex than Pokemon and more of them than Beanie Babies are Aesop's Fables. Every day hundreds of entire classrooms of kids from all over the world stop by to read, learn and enhance their living experience. This website is widely read by all cultures from all over the world. Next time you are using napster and downloading mp3 files, stop by here while that runs in the background.
"When we browse the collection, suddenly we are sated with such morals as Clumsy Jesting Is No Joke, A Man Is Known By The Company He Keeps, and Union Gives Strength. It's the place to go when you want sharp insights, gentle humor, and lessons in life." -- YAHOO
Come on in and enjoy the ageless and timeless wisdom of Aesop and his Fables - the truest family fun on the Internet.
