Map Monday: Maps of the Change

With the recent release of The Golden Princess by SM Stirling (check out my review on Amazing Stories) I decided to showcase two maps I found last week that were inspired by the Emberverse series. The first is a world map of the Changeverse from 2020 AD by Zoidberg12:
The big issue I have with this map is that it doesn't take into account the information from the new book, but otherwise an excellent work of fan cartography. Next up we have a map from Ephraim Ben Raphael showcasing the United States of America (Guam):
Click on the link for more details on how this imagined survivor state (this is certainly not canon) came to exist. Really nice looking map in my opinion, but I expect as much from Ephraim (whose work has appeared numerous times on The Update).

Honorable mention this week goes to The Germanator and his two maps of Swedish America (1699 and 1730). If you want to submit a map for the next Map Monday, email me at ahwupdate at gmail dot com with your map attached and a brief description in the body of the email.
