I haven’t written much about my Antarctic adventure on this blog yet, but I did tell the folks at Conde Nast Traveler that it wasn’t what I was expecting. If Frozen Planet has interested you in seeing the bottom of the world, my little write-up might be worth a look.
Tomorrow, Maphead hits bookstores in paperback! As I’ve mentioned before, the new version has a couple little addenda (a geography quiz, some tongue-in-cheek tips for book groups) and a few embarrassing errors fixed. “Chloropleth” has been correctly re-spelled as “choropleth.” (Six months too late to prevent the Twitter abuse I received on this point from a possibly inebriated ESRI cartographer.) Ardmore, Tennessee has been correctly transplanted from Ardmore, Louisiana. And so on.
I’ll try to keep the blog updated from the road on my little five-city tour. I look forward to seeing some of you there.
