Inspiration: The Travels of Sir John Mandeville

This short, nutty travel diary/guide for pilgrims/moral verbal cartography of the earth/mappa mundi bizarro brims with dogfaced men, blemmyae, devils, “Saracens,” and generally wonderfully late-medieval encounters.

Use it in fantasy. Use it equally in post-apocalyptica, wherein patchwork post-communities vie for limited resources, denigrate one another’s customs, and label the Other “monster” pretty fuckin indiscriminately.
