Milwaukee, Wisconsin, US
The city of Chicago has a dark history of disaster and death, from devastating fires (Iroquois Theatre), horrific accidents (S.S. Eastland) and dreadful events (St. Valentine's Day Massacre). Let my Edward Gorey-inspired map help guide you to 14 sites known among ghost hunters and paranormal investigators to be the most active. Even if you don't believe in such otherworldly phenomenon, perhaps my map will lure you into discovering something new about Chicago's spellbinding history.

RECENTLY ADDED TRAVEL ILLUSTRATIONS
The crew of Serenity travelled all across The Verse, taking any job that would come their way - All while avoiding the Alliance. By picking up a few strays along the way, they learned the Alliance's dark secret out on Miranda. Firefly is one of my favorite sci-fi worlds - I love the mix of Asian and Old West cultures, plus all the curious backstories we will never know. Here is a map of the The Verse and a few of my favorite places the crew of Serenity visited.
"Our Milky Way galaxy gleams with more than 100 billion stars, and millions of those are likely to possess planetary systems of their own." (National Geographic)
This is a map of the sizes of planets, the distances between them, the possibilities in their vast numbers, and my amazement at these things.
The text is intentionally faint (as though written by starlight!) to reflect how little we still know, and how much we still need to learn in order to get our species up and out into the stars.
