LONG HISTORY THREAD
So I'm gonna own right off the bat that this isn't my original idea but something that I've seen brought up a lot of times in things like history TIL threads. With that out of the way, I do feel like brainstorming this a bit more.
First off, Spanish colonialism connected Western Europe to Africa (Northern African Moors and primarily Western African slaves) to the Americas (Gulf of Mexico, SW US down to Chile etc) to Asia (Marianas, Philippines and China). Other countries participated too but stay with me.

Hey author people maybe dunking on your cover artists isn't the best way to use a social media platform but what do I know right #TerryGoodkind#Fantasy
Like I can't even afford to commission cover art because 1.) I'm a grad student and 2.) I know good art costs good money. It's one of my goals to be able to do that though. But being that dismissive of something paid for by the publisher is just unbelievably petty.
