Literature-Map

this is cool -- put in an author you like* and it will show you others close in style you might like...

I would never have connected Emily Dickinson and Fannie Flagg with Michael Chabon, but it seems worth investigating...


*or dis-like, if you want to avoid similar authors...

I don't know. I think it's a great concept, but I think that if I were interested in Douglas Adams and went by this site's suggestion, I would be very disappointed with the works of JRR Tolkien or Stephen King or Anne Rice.
