Maps and Mapping in Fantasy by W.P. Wiles Like many others, I found my way into fantasy through maps. My mother read my sister and I The Hobbit, and I delighted in the map on the endpapers, drawn by Tolkien himself. It’s a rather curious map, as it happens, which doesn’t do a great deal […]

Gamers and readers have a ridiculous amount in common—so […]
