THE HISTORY NEWS: EXPLORERS by Michael Johnstone
ADVENTURE
Released: Nov. 1, 1997

Cast as one of a 3,000-year-old newspaper's series of retrospective issues on particular topics, this gathers fabricated interviews, memoirs, on-the-scene reports, obituaries, and even advertisements (``KEEP ON COURSE: Has your compass been letting you down?'') for a peculiar view of the history of Earth's exploration, from the Polynesian expansion 2,500 years ago to Jacques Piccard's 1960 descent into the Marianas Trench.
