Mark J.P. Wolf’s study of imaginary worlds theorizes world-building within and across media, including literature, comics, film, radio, television, board games, video games, the Internet, and more. Building Imaginary Worlds departs from prior approaches to imaginary worlds that focused mainly on narrative, medium, or genre, and instead considers imaginary worlds as dynamic entities in and of themselves. Wolf argues that imaginary worlds—which are often transnarrative, transmedial, and transauthorial in nature—are compelling objects of inquiry for Media Studies. Chapters touch on: a theoretical analysis of how world-building extends beyond storytelling, the engagement of the audience, and the way worlds are conceptualized and experienced a history of imaginary worlds that follows their development over three millennia from the fictional islands of Homer’s Odyssey to the present internarrative theory examining how narratives set in the same world can interact and relate to one another an examination of transmedial growth and adaptation, and what happens when worlds make the jump between media an analysis of the transauthorial nature of imaginary worlds, the resulting concentric circles of authorship, and related topics of canonicity, participatory worlds, and subcreation’s relationship with divine Creation Building Imaginary Worlds also provides the scholar of imaginary worlds with a glossary of terms and a detailed timeline that spans three millennia and more than 1,400 imaginary worlds, listing their names, creators, and the works in which they first appeared.

Journey to the land of Elser-a realm of haughty men, proud elves, nimble dellfins, and where Darkness is ever seeking to devour people's souls. Despite the old hostility between men and elves, an uneasy peace has reigned for over a century. But now all that is about to change. Darvir is a man without a past, family, or friends. Exploited by those who use his strange abilities for their own gain, all Darvir has ever known is a life of slavery and bloodshed. Elaine is intelligent, beautiful-a daughter of kings, yet she is an embarrassment and disgrace to her family for going against tradition and wanting to know the truth. Exiled to a remote part of the kingdom, she languishes there in seclusion until a deadly menace forces her to flee. When the paths of these two people cross, they are thrust into a web of peril and sorcery against impossible odds. As Darvir and Elaine both struggle to survive the myriad of dangers before them, an ancient evil is stirring and preparing to unleash a power which none can hope to prevail against. Only two people stand in its path, and they alone hold the key to possibly saving the realm from the fire that comes.
