Literature Map

This is one of my most frequented web sites, at the moment. Type in the name of any author and you get a map of other authors with similar books. They don't have every author in their database, but it is pretty good. I've found this to be an excellent way to discover writers I otherwise didn't or wouldn't know about.

If there are any wannabe writers out there (or if anyone is out there) then I suggest you check out the Evil Editor. People send him their query letters and synopsis (how do you make that plural?), and he proceeds to rip them a new one, in a constructive and comical way. This blog is somewhat similar, but not really, to that of Miss Snark, an anonymous agent doling out the query wisdom (with the help of her dog Killer Yapp.)
