Otherwhere


At the heart of much speculative fiction (and fiction in general) is a question. What if? On Tuesdays I like to throw one out there and see what you make of it. Do with it as you please. If a for-instance is not specified, feel free to interpret that instance as you wish. And if you find this becomes a novel-length answer, I'd appreciate a thank you in the acknowledgements. 😉

What if every fictional world ever devised actually exists someplace?

Today's A to Z Challenge post brought to you by the letter...

  1. Would that be cool? I'm not sure…

    And how big would that make our world? Hmm…

    1. Some fictional worlds are not on our world, so I doubt it would make ours bigger.

  9. Don’t they? I would imagine that all Fictional places are parts of places the writers have been, just expanded upon.

  10. I don't think we could actual handle fictional place..we would mess it up sooner or later.
