That's a nice poster, but I might take issue with Frankenstein being categorised under Regency (although of course technically it is). I'm also not quite sure why Agatha Christie is under three different genres that I can see, and what is the difference between a whodunit and a detective novel. Small points, however.

Wow, unless I missed it, westerns and weird westerns aren't even included.
You didn't, and that's a big overall category to blow off. My issue is that there doesn't seem to be a space for non-paranormal "urban" fantasy (such as Emma Bull's War For The Oaks and, arguably, Kate Danley's Maggie MacKay books), unless they're getting lumped in with "contemporary".

There are some weird ones. His Dark Materials isn't contemporary fantasy, for example. Frankenstein is Science Fiction, but not under SF? I dunno. I think there are better examples, but they were trying to go with "classics" or something and don't really get a lot of the genres.

Go from the center to the far left to the "Of a Place" category, then go up one block.
Yeah would have been surprised if Western was not there. I mean it is not 100% all inclusive, probably have to be A LOT bigger, but Western would have be a shocking oversight.

That's a really cool poster! I wonder if I could find a way to print off a giant copy of this...

Time for the Sacketts to ride into town and shoot that poster full of holes. ;)
Love this ^ humour.
Loved the poster too. As this was just too complex to read on the internet for my dyslectic vision, and I wanted to, I just ordered a poster. I love it. I can get lost reading it on the fridge door and forget why I went to the fridge. :). Thanks for sharing.
