By Aidan Doyle: I’ve always loved maps and there are some fun versions of subway maps, such as Internet traffic redesigned as the Tokyo Subway Map. I used MetroMapMaker.com to make a subway map of novels which have recently won some of the major SF/F awards. I was curious to see how often the winning books overlapped. The Hugo and Nebula awards are much closer than the other awards. It’s easier to see the books, such as Ancillary Justice and The City and the City, which dominate the awards. The World Fantasy Award is also more likely to result in a tie.

If only you could see me.I have the magnifying glass trying to read the names even though I have enlarged the map.Nearly as much fun as last night’s video chat.I am curious how you chose the names.
Very cool. I loved looking at it.
Need to play with this tool now. Thanks Aidan!
What’s “The One Body Problem?”
The Readers Digest condensed edition? 😉
I notice that one, and also “The Yiddish Policemans Ball”
Passengers on the Hugo Awards line, stopping at The City and the City, have to go through Customs to transfer to the World Fantasy Award line, and vice-versa.
And Ancillary Justice leads directly to Annihilation, if you take the Nebula Award line.
@Cora Buhlert: You made me LOL!
Great map, a nice fun treat tonight. 🙂
