Imagine if someone took all of the meaningful data from all your favorite books and put it in one place? Well, a new site called Small Demons has made that a reality. Small Demons collects and catalogs the music, movies, people and objects mentioned in books and makes those details searchable, creating a universe of book details, or as they call it, a storyverse.
Users may be inspired to listen to Prince’s “Little Red Corvette” while reading Haruki Murakami’s Kafka on the Shore or Nick Hornby’s High Fidelity. Or find themselves in the Covent Garden district of London just like in Stieg Lasrsson’s The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and Hanif Kureishi’s The Buddha of Suburbia. Small Demons CEO Valla Vakili was so intrigued by the description of Marseilles in Jean-Claude Izzo’s Total Chaos that he replaced the Paris leg of his trip with Marseilles, an experience so inspiring that the concept of Small Demons was born.
