There's no limit to the worlds to be found in our selection of Fantasy. These brilliant books might be fraught with political intrigue as dangerous as their magical beasts; they might straddle the border between the familiar and strange, like R. F. Kuang's Babel or Susanna Clarke's Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell; and they might, if you're lucky - as with Ursula K. Le Guin's Earthsea series, or J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings - even start with a map.
