We can all imagine such “other worlds”—be they worlds just slightly different than our own or worlds full of magic and wonder—but it is only in fiction that we can travel to them. From The Wizard of Oz to The Dark Tower, from Philip Pullman’s The Golden Compass to C. S. Lewis’s 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 volume—until now.
John Joseph Adams is the bestselling editor of many anthologies, such as Armored, Under the Moons of Mars: New Adventures on Barsoom, Brave New Worlds, Wastelands, The Living Dead, The Living Dead 2, By Blood We Live, Federations, The Improbable Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, and The Way of the Wizard. He has been nominated for four Hugo Awards and three World Fantasy Awards. He is also the editor of Lightspeed Magazine and Nightmare Magazine, and is the co-host of The Geek’s Guide to the Galaxy podcast.
Other Worlds Than These is now available at traditional brick and mortar bookstores nationwide (i.e., via Barnes & Noble or various independent booksellers), via online retailers such as Amazon.com or Barnes & Noble.com, directly from Night Shade Books, or from various other vendors.
