Promo Bits: If You Lived Here -- What's your favorite scifi/fantasy world?

The fine folks at Underland Press are up to no good, it seems.  They want to start a big mean argument about our favorite science fiction and fantasy worlds for their new book, If You Lived Here.  Of course, I'm joking.  The idea is really awesome, if you haven't heard of it before.

Here's the promo stuff I got in my email:
The project, authored and edited by Jeff VanderMeer, is called If You Lived Here: The Top 30 All Time Best Science Fiction and Fantasy Worlds. It's a compendium, of sorts, but also a travel guide to places like Dune, Ring World, Middle Earth, Lankhmar . . . and beyond . . . We've all lived in these places--in imagination if not in fact--and we're all united by our common experiences of them. We wanted to collect the worlds together in one place as both a walk down memory lane and a place to start new dreams.

We're reaching out to readers, writers, and booksellers to ask for nominations of worlds to include. We've set up a web form at, which takes the nominations and asks respondents to describe what they love about the world. (If things go according to plan, we'll include some of the responses in the book itself.)
 So, I'm going to ask you for two things:

  1. Leave a comment telling me about your favorite scifi/fantasy world.
  2. Send in your nominations for the book.
Have at it!
