Product description

Review

Choice Magazine: “Literary Wonderlands is an essential guidebook to the weird and wonderful worlds conjured up by literature across the ages […]. Fully illustrated and with illuminating text accompanying each entry it really is a joy.”

The Quiet Knitter: “This is the sort of book that you look at the index and mutter “wow” or “oh I wonder what that one says?” then hurriedly flick to the specified pages to soak up the details.”

Town and Country: “Spanning two millennia of creativity, this book comprises almost 100 sections, each one introducing readers to a different literary world through the medium of beautiful illustrations.”

New York Post holiday gift guide 2016: “Dive deep into the inner workings of your favorite literary worlds—from “Don Quixote” to “The Lord of the Rings”—in this beautiful coffee table book. Astoria Bookshop calls it “an essential addition to the library of every devotee of science fiction and fantasy.””

The Verge: “This incredible book is an encyclopaedia of some of the greatest speculative fiction stories ever put to paper.”

About the Author

She is joined by a team of contributors including journalist, author and UCL professor John Sutherland; The Wall Street Journal fiction reviewer and professor Tom Shippey; and Andrew Taylor, author of titles including Books That Changed the World.
