I have always been fascinated by the imaginary places created in films, shows, comics, and books. I have always wanted to explore these fictional cities, fictional nations, and whole other worlds or dimensions. Or just to stroll down the single street or into the lone building that is imaginatively described by some artist.

Some of these have become quite popular and well detailed; especially ones that are part of on going series like Gotham City in the various Batman comic books. Other have become just as detailed through he efforts of fans or through the works of successive authors, though they are not as common due to copyright considerations.

On of my favorite references about them is The Dictionary of Imaginary Places complied by Alberto Manguel and Gianni Guadalupi. In that spirit I am compiling this list of imaginary places described on Everything.

Places Somewhere on Earth

Fantasy Worlds, Kingdoms, etc...

Other Planes, levels of being, and the like.

Science Fiction Planets and Empires

Imaginary Buildings, Houses, or Structures
(aka, stuff I could not figure where else to put.)

Some places that only seem imaginary:
Victorian London
El Pueblo de Nuestra Senora la Reina de los Angeles de Porciuncula

I am always making additions. Email doctorm@diac.com, /msg me or (of course) softlink them here. If you were looking for a different listing of nodes try The Project project or its index.

imaginary places

don't waste your time
it's been said before
it's like everything has come full circle 

paint my room
but don't get in my bed
--some things are still better left 

i don't like the way
you're rearranged the furniture
you know i prefer
to keep things neat 

but you've always been
such a welcome visitor
and i don't have the strength to put
everything back in its place 

so unpack your bags
you're not going home
i don't even know what that means anymore 

i'm hoping this counts as good karma
in the next world
because in the next world
it's not so far 

and you can consider me gone
but not forgotten
i may have been lost
but now i'm found, now that i've found 

that the door is always open
in my house
because i needed an easier way out
