Other Worlds Than These

Other Worlds Than These
Title: Other Worlds Than These
Author:
Genre: fantasy
Annotation:What if you could not only travel any location in the world, but to any possible world?
We can all imagine such other worldsbe they worlds just slightly different than our own or worlds full of magic and wonderbut it is only in fiction that we can travel to them. From The Wizard of Oz to The Dark Tower, from Philip Pullmans The Golden Compass to C.S.Lewiss The Chronicles of Narnia, there is a rich tradition of this kind of fiction, but never before have the best parallel world stories and portal fantasies been collected in a single volumeuntil now.
Review

Anthologist Adams presents readers with a wide variety of alternate Earths, some only slightly askew and others completely unfamiliar. [] Adamss selections are mirrors reflecting one other with the best images of alternate realities. Readers will greatly enjoy this exploration of our world's foremost and ascendant speculative authors.
Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)


Reminds longtime readers of fantasy and sci-fi what we love about the genre, while also and aptly demonstrating to newcomers that these stories are about so much more than dragons and multitentacled monsters. It comes highly recommended to both and all.
