(BTW, these are a bit more detailed than they look, left-clicking just cycles through them still at a small size, but if you right-click and “open in a new window” or something like that, you will get a page that shows the full dimensions of each map at the top in red. Clicking that will take you to a full version you can zoom in on, slide around, etc.)

While I have a ton of maps both geographic and historical for the world of the Northian Cycle, all are hand-drawn, many sketched in notebooks, and labelled with my chicken-scrawl handwriting. Little by little I am going through the process of scanning them and “cleaning them up” enough to be useful, but it’s slow. Apart from the ones that make it into the books as front material, all will eventually wind up here as well, and some will be incorporated into the “Short History” files I am posting as they also make it from hand-written notes to actual files.

      Thanks, Julia. Bit of a slow process but I’m working to get up lots more as I convert them from terrible hand-drawn chicken scrawl. 😉

    I adore maps, Ed! I think you’ve seen my Google map for This Brilliant Darkness. It seemed more fitting, since it’s a contemporary fantasy. Couldn’t resist including it, though.

    Really makes me wish I wrote more epic fantasy. I’m editing some stuff like that right now, and I adore reading it, but we’ll see…

    Loving your maps might have to be enough for me, for now!

    Great to have easily readable maps, especially when reading e-books.
