Literature Map

I stumbled upon this experimental Literature Map site last night and had a bit of fun with it. Type in the name of an author and it maps out a constellation of other writers that the readers of that author will probably also like to read. The closer the names of two authors are the higher the probability of a reader who likes one of them also liking the other.

The Paul Auster experiment was interesting:


I'm going to give Haruki Murakami a try.
