GREATEST LITERATURE CONTEST #28Nowhere Lands
Identify the fictional settings in these works
You could win one of the books!
Instructions on entering are below.
Start with the easiest: The country's name (and the book title) is an anagram of "nowhere" in Samuel Butler's novel.
In this even older work, the name of the island (and again the book title) is also "nowhere", but in neo-Latin.
A world of islands created by Ursula K. Le Guin for her series of storeis and novels featuring wizards.
Ross Macdonald created the California city in his first Lew Archer novel but it's been adopted by other crime writers, including Sue Grafton who uses it as a setting for her cases.
The continent on which most of J.R.R. Tolkien's novels, like The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, take place.
In Elizabeth Gaskell's North and South, it's the fictional industrial city of the north.
Everyone who's ever lived is revived on this planet for a series of adventures beginning with To Your Scattered Bodies Go.
An island nation of tiny folks discovered by Gulliver in his travels in Jonathan Swift's collection of stories.
Your choice from several of these books (telling you their titles would give away some of the answers),
as well as from among many other selections in our other stock of the greatest literature of all time.
Prizes will go to three entrants drawn from those with the most correct answers.
Note: We often don't get enough winners with all answers right,
so it's worth entering even if you aren't sure of them all!
