A good Walker Percy research portal

Jonas' thoughtful posts on his early impressions of Walker Percy and The Second Coming inspired me to find a decent Walker Percy resource on the Internet. This one seems a good place to start, although like many academic websites it's organized somewhat oddly. (Oh, those academics -- eh, Paula?) And a quick Google search on "Second Coming Percy" yields a lot of tidbits, some useful and others not.

If you find any other potentially useful links, please post them!

That was a great link, Ed! Imagine my chagrin when I learned that Percy was heavily influenced by Kierkegaard (not Heidegger). I always found Kierkegaard to be dour and dark...which is not to say that Heidegger was a laff riot...but still!

Here's a good overview of Kierkegaard's life and works:
