One of the key elements of the 1987 series that I'm trying to highlight are the various locations that take place in the book. It fascinates me how the places featured in this story have changed, and in many ways haven't. I've always loved reading about historical events, and eventually having the chance to visit those places. With GoogleMaps, that's an immediate possibility, thus, I added the QR codes that enable a user to see the very real world places from the book.
One day, I'd hope to build this world in a virtual space that would let a user roam throughout the story as well as the very real location. But for now, old fashioned QR codes will have to do.
