Location is as important to a story as characters and time and can be a defining theme, as in urban fantasy: Benjamin Aaronovitch’s Rivers of London series could not take place in any other city, the Golgotham series could not be set anywhere but New York, and the Sandman Slim series could only happen in Los Angeles. Whether set on our earth or a mythical world, the landscape has impact on the work. The panel will discuss the effect of geography within fantasy fiction.
