There is a story, I donít know how true, about a reader of Treasure Island doing what I and so many others do. He drew a map of Treasure Island while reading the book. He then wrote to the author insisting that the descriptions and directions in the book made no sense. Stevenson reread the book and realized that the reader was correct so he drew his own map, and rewrote passages to make the continuity flow better.

Has anyone not read the works of the masters Edgar Rice Burroughs and Robert Erwin Howard and NOT wished that they could see those places?
Well, this is NOT the first place to go. Rather, this site is simply a supplement to the works of the giants that you should peruse and return here only after visiting and digesting the links below.
Many of these maps are my own creations and will often link to other sites. All of these I have in two versions, black-and-white and colorized. The ones I place here are dependent on my mood.

Whenever I attribute a map "by" a certain author, it means that this map was scanned in from the original. It may have been blown up for details or clarity.
When I attribute a map "from" a certain author, it means the map was redrawn from the original to make it more clear and to add details missing from the original. Possibly by me.
If I donít attribute a map, it simply means I donít know who drew it. Please enlighten me.
To avoid the eternity of downloading stuff you donít want to see, there are no actual maps on this page. Click on the link for the map you wish and it will open or send you to a place where the map exists. I do this because I can never get the thumbnail code to work and because there are 16 pages of html-code here. Add the maps to this page and it will take forever to load.

Due to size limitations, I have been forced to transfer a bunch of these maps to other sites. What remains here are maps concerning on the works of Edgar Rice Burroughs and my own writings because I do a lot of fanfic. See the links below for the rest of my maps.

So read on and feel free to comment, correct my mistakes and submit maps of your own. Also if you are a writer, PLEASE let me know where you think someplace is located.
