Travelogues, epic quests, mind trips, new ancient legends, immigrant narratives, manipulated histories, poems from afar—Terra Incognita: The Voyage Issue gathers the peripatetic observations of writers who have set out for Elsewhere. This special issue offers an orbis tertius of unmapped lands, as well as journeys into the deeper recesses of consciousness itself.
