Cities, and CitiesApril 18th, 2010 at 10:54
Reading the interview with Felix Gilman in a recent Locus, I was gratified to hear someone else talking about cities in fantasy, and how awesome it is to have them (they are, after all, far superior to bogs, marshes, steppes and castles).
I promptly decided to write a blog post about awesome cities in fantasy, but it’s been a long week and all I could come up with was the Emerald City, Ankh Morpork & Lankhmar, in that order.
Oh okay and maybe Gotham City. Which I’m pretty sure counts.
So help me out – what are your favourite fantasy cities? Or haven’t they been written yet? What aspects of a fantasy city most interests you?
