Sample of Challenges & Opportunities


Utopia is a pretty odd work. It's ironic like crazy—the Greek and Latin meanings of places like Utopia, Amarot, Achora are witty, learned jokes that tell the reader these places don't exist. So what does Utopia mean? Is it even supposed to mean anything?

Ah, a mystery wrapped in an enigma shoved inside a conundrum with a nice riddling center. Could it get anymore challenging? Well, alas, yes. Lots.
