We see from Bruce's description that he has removed some of the sillier aspects from Dick's original work (British troops on the Eastern Front, etc.) and managers to reference many other works of pop culture like James Bond. The fun part about The Grasshopper Lies Heavy is that America will lose this alternate Cold War, and I really would like to see Bruce share his version of how that could happen. Graphically the map is very well done, with the usual detailed work found in a Munroist map.
Honorable mentions this week go out to Ephraim Ben Raphael's hand-drawn map of North America, featuring various myths from the Age of Exploration (which I almost gave the top spot to, if only it was easier to read), and Rvbomally's The Red and the White featuring a world where the Russian Empire fragmented after WWI. You should also check out Vox's map of where the world's migrants go when you get the chance. 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.
