New Writers for Old!

Let me introduce you to a fantastic web resource that literally helps you find new writers for old! It is called and it allows you to enter the name of your favourite author, after which it generates a 'map' showing authors similar in style. It is fascinating to watch as the names shuffle into place on the map, with those nearest in style edging closer to your chosen author at the centre of the map. Give it a try! It could map out a whole new world of literature for you, and it is fascinating to watch.

Oh, and if you can spare the time, please can you tell it about 'Ian Kingsley': a new author it has yet to properly discover? It needs lots of votes to convince 'gnod' that I exist. Thank you so much!

How was it for you? Let me know if it opens new horizons.
