'The Nevil Shute Foundation web site is dedicated to the writing, wisdom and philosophy of Nevil Shute Norway ... The Nevil Shute Foundation web site is for, by, and of Nevil Shute readers everywhere. It exists primarily for the exchange of news, opinions, and similar information among readers ... It serves as a means of contact with other Shutists, as well as providing much specific Shute related information.'

The site provides a complete bibliography of Shute's works, biographical information, background to Shute's novels, a filmography of film adaptations, news of Foundation activities and links to related resource.
This website was developed from a site begun in the mid 1990s by James Dawe of Alberta, Canada. Dawe operated the site until early 1997. Dawe handed the running of the site over to John Henry (whom he had met through an Internet Nevil Shute Book Club). Henry ran the site at www.changeover.com/shute from July 1997 until mid-2001. During that time, the site was considerably enlarged. In late 2000, Henry agreed to let the Nevil Shute Norway Foundation take over the site.
