Literature Map

I've been meaning to tell you about a site I love.  It is called and is a fantastic means by which you can find authors similar to the ones you like already.

The idea is simple.  You type in the name of an author you like, press a button and, hey-presto, a constallation of stars explodes onto your screen before settling down into a galaxy of similar authors.  Those closest to your named writer are most like him or her, those furthest similar but less so.

 I love it.  Try it. If anyone knows how it works please let me know.

PS It also works for films.
