Around the World for 900 Years: Watching History Happen by George J Cole
Approx. 47,250 words.
Published on October 7, 2012.
Cole's history is World News, reported as it happens by a roving observer/commentator in an imaginary space station drifting around the Earth for 900 years. He observes interesting events that are happening about the same time in different parts of the world.
The commentator has to return to base occasionally, and misses a lot of the dull bits.
