(e)space & fiction mapped - about the relations between space and fiction (novels, movies, paintings, music, comics, art works …). We collect spatial machineries used to represent space in fiction, as maps or narratives, and places that inspire fiction and where imaginary objects may end by materializing. You will find also news, analysis and references.
