I thought this was a wonderful book, both for reader and for writers. I am going to buy one for my brother now! And as for the imaginary places they left out, my guess on that would be that the people who own the copyrights on those imaginary places would not allow the author or publisher to include them in this book. I noted that although Xanth is not there (Piers Anthony), Neverwhere is (Neil Gaiman); they are both contempory authors and I think that just boiled down to permission. It seems that everything that is no longer copywrited is included.

I recieved this book for Christmas from my paternal grandparents, who always give me tight stuff. I was crazy about this book, which covers every imaginery place in any book from Prospero's Island in "The Tempest" (great play, by the way) to Thomas More's Utopia. It was an amazing book. If you have ever loved any fantasy book, get this book! It has something to satisfy every interest.

I like the maps, and the entries, but I found this book to be extreamly limited. I mean, granted there is a lot of fantasy out there, so they had to have some guidelines, but maybe next time they could expand to books that don't have a location here on earth. Another thing that bothered me was how they left out books like Redwall series, and Madeline LEngle's books. Both of these follow the rules set by the author, but neither of them can be found in The Dictionary of Imaginary Places.

This is a wonderful vehicle for the imagination, but I hope the next edition includes Pooh's Hundred Acre Wood. How could the authors have missed this one? Perhaps a copyright issue?
