I've got a section about this on my website, but it is badly in need of updating. Some of these, of course, have requirements that everyone might not meet. I'd really like your help in adding more to the list or otherwise updating (such as if any of these are bad places to list your website or otherwise have nasty policies or aren't being updated anymore). Here are the author website directories I've got listed so far:

http://dir.yahoo.com/Arts/Humanities/Literature/Authors/

http://www.dmoz.org/Arts/Literature/Authors/

Author Yellow Pages (http://www.authoryellowpages.com/)

Author Directory (http://www.authdir.com/) (this lists birthdays too, is that an issue for identity theft?)

Books 'N Bytes (http://www.booksnbytes.com/authors/allauths_a.html)

The Author Corner (http://www.carr.org/authco/index.htm)

Authors on the Web (http://people.virginia.edu/~jbh/author.html)

Wikipedia lists of writers (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lists_of_writers) (which only works if you already have a Wikipedia article)

Edit: removed AuthorsDen from the list, because after reading this post (http://www.absolutewrite.com/forums/showthread.php?t=48652) it looks too icky.
