The Literature Map

While the interface looks suspiciously familiar, I kinda dig the thought behind this thing:

Type in the name an author, hit enter, and watch as an ever-growing matrix of similar authors opens up in front of you. On the one hand it gives you the opportunity to see how your idea of what authors are related stacks up against those who have contributed to the site, but at the same time there's always the chance that one of the names that pops up is one you haven't yet had the chance to explore.

Kinda like a Pandora for books, when you think about it.
