From Atlantis to Tolkien's Middle-Earth, this Baedeker of the imagination takes readers on a tour of more than 1,200 realms invented by storytellers from Homer's day to our own. And now, brought up to date with dozens of invaluable new entries and illustrations, such as Umberto Eco's Island of the Day Before, Salman Rushdie's Sea of Stories, and Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere, this volume is even more authoritative and comprehensive. Profiled within are lands drawn from Lewis Carroll, Edgar Rice Burroughs, Jules Verne, L. Frank Baum, C. S. Lewis, Jorge Luis Borges, and more. Written with the wit and insight that has made Alberto Manguel a bestselling authority on literature, the book is also a visual treat: more than 200 original illustrations and maps reveal the lay of the land in Oz, Lilliputia, Narnia, and elsewhere. Here are worlds enough and more for every reader, fantasy fan, and passionate browser.
