Click on the image below to display an interactive map showing all of the countries where Diana Gabaldon's books are currently published. (There are at least 30 of them!)
You can click on the arrows or the + and - to move around the map and zoom in and out.
Notice the red dots. As you hover your mouse over one of those red dots, it will display a small picture of the OUTLANDER (or CROSS STITCH) cover for that country.
[UPDATE 3/8/2012 9:14 am: If you're having trouble viewing the covers, or if only the country name is displayed and no picture, please leave a comment here and let me know a) which countries are not displaying properly, and b) what web browser you are using. This is still a "work in progress" and there are a few bugs still to be worked out. Thanks for helping me test it!]
I created this map using iMapBuilder. You need a Flash player in order to view the map, but it should work in most browsers.
Many thanks to:
- Susan Leidy (aka "Sooz") for suggesting this idea
- Diana Gabaldon for her permission to use the covers
- Susan Butler ("Herself's Elf"), Diana's assistant, who sent me a list of all the countries where the books are currently published
- Carmen Theiler, creator of the Outlandish Cover Gallery, who allowed me to link to the cover images on her site.
I hope you enjoy this! The direct link to the map is here. Please feel free to pass it around to anyone who might be interested.
