My friend John Hornor Jacobs is shopping around his novel This Dark Earth to publishers. It's good, as you will learn one day (although Southern Gods is the novel that will knock your socks off), but that's not what I wanted to bring to your attention. John is also a graphic artist, and he has developed an interactive map for the novel. You can read his post here, or if you're lazy, click straight to the map here. This is all kinds of awesome.
Me, if I draw a stick figure, everyone asks "What is that supposed to be?"
