New Anthology: Other Worlds Than These

What if you could not only travel any location in the world, but to any possible world?

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, and this anthology will explore that concept — the idea of a person or persons from our world traveling to other worlds or alternate realities.

This reprint anthology will collect the best of these parallel worlds stories, alongside the best portal fantasies. As I’ve done with most of my other anthologies, I’d like to solicit recommendations, so if you have any outstanding examples of this kind of fiction you’d like to point out to me, please feel free to let me know about them by entering them into my Parallel Worlds database (

I’m primarily interested in short fiction, but if you want to recommend novels or novel series, that is welcome too, as I may include a “for further reading” list in the anthology.

If you are a writer and would like to recommend your own story, that’s fine too, and if so, you should feel free to also email me a copy in RTF or Doc format to jjadams.anthology [at] gmail [dot] com.

Reminder: I’m also soliciting recommendations for an epic/high fantasy anthology.
