Press release: The Top 30 All Time Best Science Fiction and Fantasy Worlds

An email that I wanted to share you:

I’m Lorrie, the new marketing person at Underland Press. I’m writing now to both introduce myself, and to tell you about a project we’re pretty darn excited about, which might have some resonance with your Green Man Review readers.
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 here, 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.) We’re looking for as much community involvement as possible in this project, and we’d love it if you could help with a signal boost, a mention, or even some nominations of your own.
