Hak Nam, Kowloon Walled City. 35,000 people living on 6.5 acres, existing without internal or external government, with a fully developed infrastructure (power, water, commerce, housing, etc.). A den of vice rising 14 stories over the rest of Kowloon, home to Triads & drug labs. They tore it down in 1993. Wish I coulda made the trip. Also, wish that the one book I can find on it (CITY OF DARKNESS, Watermark Publications) runs like $60. Assuming it's findable. Amazon's listing it as out of print and the publisher's site shows the last publication date as 2000.
Anyway, heading to bed. The thing I've been working on crossed 47 pages tonight. Dunno whether to be proud that I've put down that many words or scared that it'll fizzle out.
Have a good'n, kids.
