Toward an Index of All Stories

Small Demons - A story "names" database

"How useful might a proper-name index to all novels and movies be? If, for example, you wanted to discover all instances of Peeps in fiction, or every time someone drove a Mustang, or took a picture of Big Ben?

That is the humble goal of Small Demons, a new service (still in beta) that aims to allow readers to discover connections between works, as well as to more fully understand the way novels and movies they love represent the world."

I'm not sure when we'll see more YA fiction added, but I can see great potential for both academic folks as well as the interested casual reader.
