Today's post about Invisible Cities (which sounds fascinating) reminded me of a brief conversation we had between Jeopardy rounds about Jan Potocki's Manuscript Found at Saragossa, which is, I think, of a broadly similar spirit. Did you ever get a chance to read it and, if so, what did you think?
You should also check out Eco's Baudolino, if you haven't already. After being fairly disappointed by Island of the Day Before, I was really bowled over by Eco's riff on the Prester John legend.
Great blog, BTW, and congratulations on Brainiac.
