World Map

Well, I've made a decision. The next manuscript we'll be burning here will be a full length novel, so strap in for about the next year as Manuscripts Burns presents: THE LAST WAR.

This was a difficult decision to come to because I spent a LONG time writing "The Last War." Re-reading it, though, I see that it had a pretty warped idea of the world's sociopolitical environment. Even at the time I wrote it I knew it was a little outlandish, but now with a little bit of distance I see that it is absolutely farcical. For evidence, take a look at today's multimedia event, a map of the world situation during the Last War. That's right, the Mongols came back in a BIG way.

As I said, we're talking full length novel here (about 111,000 words) so this could take a while. I think it's sompletely entertaining and as I mentioned earlier the only reason we're burning it is because it's exceedingly naive and outlandish in terms of what the next world war will look like. But take some time to familiarize yourself with the map because tomorrow we take the plunge.
