If I Wrote a Book, Would You Buy It?

Recently, it occurred to me that I have enough ideas to write a short book. No, not a novel or anything like that, an "atlas of the multiverse," if you will. I'm thinking fifty different dystopian states, each with a page or two of information on their history, politics and life in them, with a regional map and a small world map of that timeline.

I have made a poll for y'all to vote in. I'm interested in what y'all think, so please give me some feedback on this idea! :)

EDIT: For the record, these would be all original, new worlds and new societies. I won't be recycling any of my old work, or doing covers for anyone else's.

Read my interview with Mitro on the Alternate History Weekly Update! alternatehistoryweeklyupdate.b…
A May 4th challenge - a "mirror" Star Wars Original Trilogy that isn't just a repeat of the Clone Wars.
Friendly reminder: good things come to those who poke around scrapbooks. ;)
Hoping for a Pacquiao win. Not because I care about boxing, but because that sort of nationalism is still acceptable. :p
Avelov will be the topic of the next Space Cadet update. The only reason the poll is still up is because I have no idea how to do so. Be sure to vote for the next Space Cadet lore update!

I know you don't do request as far as I can tell, but out of curiosity (and curiosity alone) assuming you've seen some of my Dawnverse material or Royal Psychos map adapting it and the two Solar Strife one's losely connected to it (It's the parent universe to the former) he did as request for me last year, how would you do/handle things if you did map maps based on them or if they were your own ideas etc.

Eg a world where a time travling Telepath serious derails history and a distopia where the US & Britian and some other nations are locke din a long Cold War with an alternate and more pragmatic Third Reich (Europeian Russia and Ukraine etc as puppets rather then colonized and cleansed, same for the rest of Europe). The Reich is dominated by Blonded Haired Blue Eyed Aryan Telepath's who dominate the SS and military etc while the US supresses it's ones via the United States Department of Telepathic Regulationand Control and is a massivly corrupted corportocracy/oilgarchy where few people even remember true democracy or even care anymore and the rest of the world isn't much better off.

I don't quite understand, are you asking me how I make maps? In this case, I'd work from a WWII-era map and think about what makes sense to me, then map it out.

Sorry my damned tendency to ramble stuff things up.

I was basically asking what your take on my Dawnverse would be like hypothetically given that you don't take request as far as I know. Just curious as to how you would apply your signature dystopian style and any other things you might throw in. Just asking out of curiosity essentially

When I deal with the supernatural, I tend to take a very Lovecraftian/Chaos route. I wouldn't have just telepaths - they'd be the unwitting pawns of dark entities, perhaps ones that wish to use the telepaths as a way to manipulate mankind into awakening them from their eternal slumber. Your take on the Germans and Americans isn't much different from what I'd do. The Nazis are, well, the Nazis, and oligarchic Americas show up quite a lot in my work. I'd probably have some communists in there, perhaps the People's Republic of China merged with what's left of Soviet Siberia. Maybe throw some Islamists into the mix to make the Middle East more interesting. If I were feeling silly, I'd go Command and Conquer and just throw in all sorts of crazy tech.

Hey, after a bit of a resting period, have some new map ideas inspired by some of yours. First would be the SinoAmerican World War 3 and second would be the take of a SinoIndia war, but here, using the SinoIndia conflict as a spring board.
