Map Monday: Wilson's Julian Comstock by Tsar of New Zealand

No Weekly Update due to Labor Day festivities (should start calling this place Alternate History Bi-Weekly Update), but I still have a Map Monday post for you all. This week we feature Tsar of New Zealand's map of Robert Charles Wilson's world featured in his novel Julian Comstock: A Story of 22nd Century America:
Julian Comstock is one of those books I haven't read, but people speak very highly about. I do know its sets in a post-peak oil future where humanity has entered a second dark age of steam technology (since people forgot how to use solar, wind and nuclear power I guess). According to Tsar, however, Wilson only focuses on America so this map extrapolates what is happening in the rest of the world. Being a fan of Munroist maps, I enjoyed the ASB geopolitics of the 22nd Century and it makes me want to finally pick up a copy to learn a little more about Wilson's world.

Honorable mention this week goes to False Dmitri's "Imperial Republic of Russian California". 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.
