torch's recommendations is one of the early multi-fandom rec pages (and perhaps one of the first to explicitly state it was "recommendations" rather than reviews?). It was created on October 16, 1997, and posted 17 recs in 1997, for X-Files and The Sentinel.Description from All Jewels Have Flaws:
There're more fannish rec pages all the time, and I think it's a great thing. Find someone with tastes either similar to yours -- or diametrically opposed -- and let them do all the work finding stories. [...] torch hosts a wonderful multimedia one (weighted heavily towards Phantom Menace, X-Files, Highlander and vampire stories).
