Found this amusing toy in Julie Czerneda's writing group: http://www.literature-map.com/

I had fun following SF/fantasy writers around for a while. Then I started doing other authors. I was pleased to see Stephen Fry end up in P.G. Wodehouse's map, though surprised to see Lloyd Alexander there.

I was also amused (though NOT surprised) to see Jasper Fforde end up in Anthony Trollope's map, since after shadowfey introduced me to him, I ended up describing him to my aunt as "Imagine if Anthony Trollope tried to write Discworld, and you'll be in the right general neighborhood."


Re: Jasper Fforde, is that a good thing or a bad thing?
He actually went to my university's sci-fi Con a couple of years ago. Really cool guy.
Weeeeell, considering I have a lovely hardback set of Anthony Trollope in a place of honor on my shelves, and I also have a ton of Discworld? From my viewpoint, I say 'good thing.' Others might disagree. ;)
