Worlds Where We Live

I was just alerted that if you search on Google Books for Something So Strong, apart from everything else it comes up with - edited scans, for example - is this nifty map of all the places mentioned in the book. As a map aficionado, that gives me a buzz.

Not quite as big a buzz as The Word's Album Atlas, however, though it uses the same technology. It shows the places where the cover shots of hundreds of albums were taken, from Abbey Road to Karekare to Muscle Shoals to Timbuktu. Now that's addictive.
