A Literary World Map

I've been wanting to create a literary world map for some time, so I figure now is as good a time as any! I'll be taking the books listed on the Modern Library's list of the 100 best books of the 20th century and pulling places -- both fictional and real -- from the books to place on a map. I love the look of old ancient maps with sea monsters and ships, so I'd like to incorporate some of that, as well!

So, getting started... here's my first exercise, a hastily scribbled hand-drawn map.

A map of Christinaville -- what a town would look like full of all my favorite places and things from everywhere I've ever been (constrained by an 8.5x11 sketchbook).
