Back in early 2009, I was writing articles for an on-line magazine. When I applied for the job, they asked me to pitch to them what made me tick. Whatever I said, they knighted me the 'Underground Travel' reporter. I don't know if that meant reporting about things below street level or they perceived me as the fringe living Bohemian that I am. I just wrote whatever I wanted and nobody got hurt.

This zine is about my travels in three empire states: Japan, China and Mongolia. Of course, it’s also partial: it’s my trip, it’s what I saw and thought and experienced. So while it's about the stuff I mention, it is also about me: it can’t not be, as everything we write reflects who we are. So there's some identity musings in here too, plus a bit on dark tourism. And some fun stuff too.
