The Ministry of Thunder – Influence Map


I wanted to do a post on the movies and the books, and the comics, that I consider an influence on my novel.

That’s been done to death.

Then I remembered a nice meme tool created by fox-orian, on deviantart.
Why not draw/assemble an influence map for my novel, and let the punters divine its meaning and contents by themselves?

And so, here we go…
