Worlds of Yesterday's Tomorrow

Star Wars: A New Heap, or, How I Stopped Worrying and Learned to Love the Death Star is an intriguing web-essay on connections between SF film, modern architecture, and other odd angles.

Altogether elsewhere, but not unconnected: the architecture of occupied Kabul.


How are you reading that? I click on your link, and I get a title page, but I can't scroll down to actual text, and there don't seem to be any clickable links anywhere that lead to the essay. Do I need to subscribe to something to get access? Or am I missing something really dumb?


When the page opens, do you get a white minus sign on the left and a black plus sign on the right? If so, click the black plus sign. If not, then you may have some browser software problem... maybe the javascript app that allows the article to scroll past left-to-right. Good news is that even if you can't get it to scroll, the text of the article (minus the pictures... which are rather important to the article) is present in the page source code... in a difficult-to-read format. Good luck!
