Lua : Main website for Lua.

Lua users wiki : Tons of good documentation, howtos, snippets and links to add-on packages.

Programming in Lua : First edition of the Lua book. Most is still relevant, a few things got changed though. It's worth buying and reading the second edition.

Lua reference manual : The Lua reference manual. Very handy, especially if you have it besides your laptop as a real book (really cheap!).
