I typed in Lois McMaster Bujold.
The site says “What else do readers of Lois Mcmaster Bujold read? The closer two writers are, the more likely someone will like both of them. Click on any name to travel along.”
Some authors floating near Bujold whom I haven’t read (or not much): Jim Butcher, Glen Cook.
Some authors ditto whom I just love: Dorothy Dunnett, Georgette Heyer — how interesting that the site doesn’t care if they’re SFF authors or other genre authors!
Now let me just click over here to CJ Cherryh, also close to Bujold … okay, after the screen settles down, I can see that Frederick Pohl is generally favored by Cherryh fans. Not by me particularly. Sharon Shinn as well, which is interesting — I love both Cherryh and Shinn, but I would have said they’re quite different. Clicking on Sharon Shinn . . . oh, look, here’s Nicola Griffith way over on the edge. Oh, and here’s Rosemary Kirstein …
Very interesting, oddly compelling site for such bare-bones graphics. The way the names swirl around like minnows in a pond definitely has something to do with that. I encourage you all to click through and try this out.
