  What do AlagaŽsia, Earthsea, Arrakis, Xanth and Discworld have in common? Well for one thing, there's no sense taking a car - they can only be reached by book. These fictional, otherworldly locales have been dreamed up by the best and brightest minds in writing. While they may bear some resemblance to reality and the world as we know it, they have their own rules, cultures and fantastical inhabitants, from orcs, mermaids, nymphs and unicorns to enslaved flying monkeys, centaurs and hippogriffs. It takes a tremendous amount of skill, creativity and patience to create a strange and wondrous land, and we've found 25 examples of books that are - truly - out of this world.
