Inspired by the TV show Watchmen. You can read it over at Uncanny.
An interesting and thought provoking essay by one of my favourite writers. Djèlí is a historian by day and he provides lots of links for you to learn things with.
And for those of you who haven’t watched Watchmen yet, then seriously get the fuck out from under that rock you’ve been living under and turn the computer on and find it. Seriously good TV.
