Literature Map Points the Way to Similar Authors

gnooks logoYou’ve read everything your favorite author has written, and now you want to find someone who writes like them? Try using the literature map on gnooks.com. Type in the authors you enjoy (one at a time, please) and watch as the names of similar authors swirl around and around the one you typed. The closer they are to your choice, the more like them they write. To explore further, click on any of those names and a new literature map will appear with the writers who are most similar to them. You may agree or disagree, but you’ll find plenty of new authors to try.
