Against the Map

I am about to start the second reading of Against the Day so this blog will come back to life shortly. I have also decided to play a different game as i am reading Against the Day by plotting on Google Maps locations that are mentioned in the book. For this reason I have prepared this Against the Day Google Map intending to put ‘pins’ on it as the reading progresses. It would have been a good idea to have a back-forth relation between entries of this blog and pins on the map but I am not sure whether this is possible. The plan is to have another type of reference for Against the Day using this map.

  2. I attempted this very challenge during my 2nd reading, upon a real paper map. It evolved from a gross assembly of place names to a “chronological” (when possible) plotting of specific character/character-group paths. this became more and more physically frustrating as the narrative progressed(no wall map is big enough!) and I’ve since dreamed of a more complete and accessible digital form. cheers and encouragement!

  3. @werner presbner wow, thanks for that link, My big obstacle with this was the fact that I had issues with editing the placees i was going to add. This mapper is definitely a lifesaver.

    @ukelangelo. Thanks for the encouragement. Id love to see a photo of that map!

  4. i axually LIVE (sutch azzittizz) in and amongst some of the places listed/mentioned. t.p. does indeed delve into the extradimensionality of these locales. makes ya’ look twice (if one is accustomed to only lookin’ once). so, i look 3 times, if i have the time, and the volition.
