that first article on Hashima is excellent, reading the others now. Thanks

Very cool post, thanks for this. I wish there were more pictures, though.

I agree with sourbrew. If you are only going to read one link, the first on Hashima is by far the best. And the magazine it comes from, Cabinet, is consistently amazing.

I wanted to see pictures of Hashima, so I did a google image search, which led me to this write-up on the documentary mentioned in the note in the Cabinet article. Click on the "more photos" link for, you know, more photos. Eerie.

(Oddly, the first two sentences in the write-up seem to have been lifted directly from the Cabinet article.)

Thanks for the post!

More links for Hashima, a.k.a. Gunkanjima or Battleship Island, are available here.

Nikumaroro is a once-inhabited, now deserted, Pacific island that may be home to Amelia Earhart's ghost.

A much better site on San Borondón (St. Brendan). Unfortunately, only in Spanish.
Warning: As you'll surely notice, the "discovery of San Borondón" chronicled there is entirely fake. Nobody has yet found San Borondón...or at least travelled back to tell about it...
