View Full Version : Glad someone's done it at last.

One of my hopes for the Cartographers' Guild was that we would start making maps for fantasy and SF books which didn't have them.

I found this site tonight: http://fantasymaps.wordpress.com/

Where someone is doing just that - and we're on the blogroll!

and another interesting link to us: http://www.mortality.net/print.php?sid=4402

Great Rav :)

Another of your great web findings!

They even have a map of mine listed.

Glad to have been of service.

Hopefully it will last, since I'm starting to get some pressure from a couple of publishers to take stuff down.

On the plus side, I've gotten emails from a couple of authors that think it will do nothing but boost sales, especially in older published novels.

Let me know what I can do to improve the place. Also, any pointers toward maps I don't have would be appreciated. I've just about run dry on what I can find on the internet, and I've resorted to scanning slowly out of my personal collection.

Anna, I'm glad you're appreciate. I will definitely take a look at your further maps when I get a chance.

Glad to have you here ebolag!

I wonder what the copyright position is if we make our own maps of existing novels?

Ditto! Your blog is on my bookmarks :)
In fact finding the Chronicles of Majipoor maps on the front was a veritable blast from the past: I read the book(s) some 8 years ago.

I'd say it's fan art just to be on the safe side. So no selling prints of them without the author/publisher's accord ;)
