The Map of Literary Genres – #fanfun

I saw this Huffington Post and couldn’t believe the maps created by Martin Vargic. He’s been creating maps since he was nine years old!

Martin Vargic is a 17-year-old senior student and amateur graphic designer from Slovakia who rose to international fame in late January 2014, when his work Map of the Internet 1.0 went viral, generating hundreds of thousands of hits and Facebook shares. It was subsequently featured on Mashable, Yahoo, The Daily Mail online, The Independent Slate, Fox News, The Huffington Post, Business Insider, Gizmodo and dozens of other sites worldwide. He also works under the name Jay Simmons.

In subsequent months, Vargic published several other maps in his portfolio on his website, halcyonmaps.com, each of which were picked up all over the Internet.

In his latest work, the Map of Stereotypes, which took him over 4 months to finish, Vargic pulled together more than 1800 clichés and pop culture references into a map based on the stereotypical westerner´s view of the world. It too received immediate media attention, and was prominently featured on a multitude of sites such as Slate, The Huffington Post, RT and many others.

About the author

Bette Lee Crosby

USA Today Bestselling and Award-winning novelist Bette Lee Crosby's books are "Well-crafted storytelling populated by memorable characters caught up in equally memorable circumstances." - Midwest Book Review The Seattle Post Intelligencer says Crosby's writing is, "A quirky mix of Southern flair, serious thoughts about important things in life and madcap adventures." Samantha from Reader's Favorite raves, "Crosby writes the type of book you can't stop thinking about long after you put it down." "Storytelling is in my blood," Crosby laughingly admits, "My mom was not a writer, but she was a captivating storyteller, so I find myself using bits and pieces of her voice in most everything I write." It is the wit and wisdom of that Southern Mama Crosby brings to her works of fiction; the result is a delightful blend of humor, mystery and romance along with a cast of quirky charters who will steal your heart away. Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript. She has since gone on to win nineteen awards for her work; these include: TheRoyal Palm Literary Award, the FPA President's Book Award Gold Medal, Reader's Favorite Award Gold Medal, and the Reviewer's Choice Award.
