Travel often inspires the creation of narratives about journeys and destinations, more so with the increasing availability of online platforms, applications for smartphones and tablets, and various other social media technologies. This book examines travel blogs and their associated social media as a form of self-presentation that negotiates the tensions between discourses of travel and tourism. As such, it addresses how contemporary travellers use online platforms to communicate their experiences of journeys and destinations, and how the traveller/tourist dichotomy finds expression in these narratives. Addressing the need for more in-depth analysis through a study of blogs, this exploration of networked narratives of an individual's travel experience considers personal motivations, self-promotion, and self-presentation as key factors in the creation of both personal and commercial travel blogs. As this text applies concepts such as self-presentation and heteroglossia, it will be of interest to both students and scholars of tourism, new media, sociology, cultural studies, and discourse studies.
Twelve-year-old Tee is an apprentice with her father, a master blacksmith. When he dies unexpectedly, she discovers a notebook hidden inside a secret drawer in his workshop. In it, she finds detailed instructions to build a device that would allow her to travel back in time. Grief stricken, she begins. But she is soon caught between her fervent wish to see her father again and the sheer impossibility of her task. "Stefan Bolz's writing is not merely inventive but lyrical, almost mystical. You can't help but fall under the spell of the worlds he creates, the characters he gives life to. He's one of that vanguard of authors bringing speculative fiction into a new silver age." -Samuel Peralta, award-winning author and creator of 'The Future Chronicles'
