The following are review articles on string theory and related topics which can be downloaded (in PDF, postscript, or other formats) from the arXiv preprint server. Except for the first category, the reviews are technical in nature (an explanation of the basic idea of string theory intended for the general public may be found here). Other string links, including online conference proceedings, are listed here. Another useful list of reviews may be found at the String Wiki.
