Okay, some progress here. Shawn Micallef's Frontier City: Toronto on the Verge of Greatness is done. It's a snapshot of his perceptions of recent Toronto history, particularly in the wake of the Ford years. The phrase "too soon to tell" sticks in the mind where his opinion is concerned.

Hidden Universe: the Klingon Empire by Dayton Ward takes the travel guide idea and applies it to...well, mostly Qo'noS. The Empire's a big place, as he notes himself (and perhaps larger than the text implies), but it does focus mainly on the homeworld.

By accident, I discovered Hope in the Dark by Rebecca Solnit. You've read mentions of her work pulling together historical atlases on New York, San Francisco and New Orleans here in this weblog over the years, and this book is a collection of her essays reminding us that hope is a realistic option even in horrific times. Originally published in 2004, it was revised and reprinted as yet another consequence of DT-45's election to the American presidency.

Still trying to make time for The Revenge of Analog by David Sax.
