I'm hip deep in a short story, a fairy tale about an immortal King of a fictional European country called Zembla and his weird descendants. On a lark, I decided to google "Zembla" to see what would come up. I expected a few hits, since Zembla is the name of the fictional country of origin of the poet in Nabakov's Pale Fire. I only meant to rip of one of the great masters of 20th century literature and as a bonus, stumbled onto a great little blog called King of Zembla. Which means I'll probably need to rename the kingdom to be a bit more original. Any suggestions?
