Otherworldly Maine

Overview

Elizabeth Hand, Stephen King, and Edgar Pangborn put Maine on the map as a place where otherworldly things happen. But they're not the only authors who see the state as a source of inspiration for fantasy and science fiction. Twenty-four writers from Mark Twain to Jack L. Chalker, Gardner Dozois — and, yes, Hand, King, and Pangborn — present everything from dark fantasies of the past to a utopian vision of the future.
