Gnooks: tells me what I want to read

I don't know if this is a new website or not, but it sure fascinates me. Gnooks has a literature map, where you type in an author and it gives you a spacial view of where another author is relative to that author. Type in John Grisham and Tom Clancy and Ken Follet are right next to him. Type in Neil Gaiman and you get Terry Pratchett. Anne Rice and Clive Barker are shades away from Stephen King. What makes it fun, if not incredibly useful, is the graphical nature of the words floating around.
