Fantasy Cartography

Both La Cartoteca and The Map Room have linked to Fantasy Cartography, a blog/depository of maps from fantasy stories Maps of everything from computer games like World of Warcraft, twisted minds like H.P. Lovecraft, to required classics like Lord of the Rings can be found. Catholicgauze knows his women readers will swoon over The Princess Bride maps.

A map can be right up there with the book for those who can read maps. One can easily relive the story by looking at the map and remember the places where events occurred. It is also easy to imagine one's own adventures in these fantasy lands. May my readers get joy and indulge in a little guilty pleasure of part taking in some fantasy.

Twisted mind???

I will have you know, that Cthulhu is real and has been recorded by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration!

Not real, just fictional as your link states.

Wikipedia:

Because the Bloop noise originated near the location of the fictional sunken city of R'lyeh from H.P. Lovecraft's story "The Call of Cthulhu", the Bloop has been linked to Cthulhu by Lovecraft fans.

TDAXP,
Where do you find this stuff?

Anon,
One must know the madness of TDAXP's mind to know he is joking.
