something to say
Terra Incognita need hold no terror for the intrepid explorer....
what the critics might say:
a slightly skewed new view for the 21st century, tongue-in-cheek travelogue, & some mildly diverting digressions from formulaic genre clichés, all dressed up in the first-person persona of an anti-heroic culture-shock jock...

PS - by the way, here is a map of Utopia, printed in the book of the same name by Thomas More:
Utopiae insulae forma (edition 1516)
"As long as there is property, and while money is the standard of all things, I cannot think that a nation can
be governed either justly or happily; not justly, because the best things will fall to the
share of the worst men; nor happily, because all things will be divided among a few (and
even these are not in all respects happy), the rest being left to the absolutely
"The source of happiness is much disputed, among all people, in Utopia."
Utopia, Thomas More, 1516
What is YOUR version of Utopia? Then & there? Or here & now?
Or, how about NUTOPIA: "Citizenship of the country can be obtained by declaration of your awareness of NUTOPIA. NUTOPIA has no land, no boundaries, no passports, only people. NUTOPIA has no laws other than cosmic. All people of NUTOPIA are ambassadors of the country." (John Lennon, 1973)
