Just in Case You Suddenly Get a Lot of Extra Time

Presenting . . . The Literature Map! A snazzy little website where you can plug in an author you like, then it displays a cloud of authors similar. The closer the author, the more similar. It's pretty keen, although they do need a little editing (Jane Austin?), and it's kind of fun to follow your own literary tastes through all the different clouds it generates. It's not snobbish about kidlit or genre fic, either.

Thanks to Throwing Marshmallows for the link! What fun!

I have this link on my blog too - it is really cool.

As you say, you can spend hours and then end up googling new authors. Brilliant stuff.
