- Middle Earth (Tolkein)
- Narnia (Lewis)
- Discworld (Pratchett)
- The worlds of the Brothers Grimm
- The worlds of Han Christian Andersen (though he was an odd fellow. Maybe it helped his writing!).
- The worlds of Jeeves and Wooster (Wodehouse). Yes, it is fantasy!
- The worlds of Lord Emsworth and Uncle Fred (Wodehouse). See above comment!
- The worlds of Poirot (Christie). Would be considered fantasy now given how different it is from what we know/experience now.
- The worlds of Miss Marple (Christie). See above.
- The Nursery Crime Division novels (Jasper Fforde). If you like police procedurals and humorous writing, I highly recommend these. I've only recently discovered these and think they're wonderful stories.
One of the great joys of writing is the appreciation it gives you for the works of others. It adds depth to your reading pleasure for one thing. No real surprises here but my favourite fantasy worlds (other than my own of course!) are as follows. They're not in any particular order.
I'm Allison Symes and write fairytales with bite, especially novels and short stories.
