A few quick stipulations:
- I’m only interested in stories set on a planet inhabited by living, mortal creatures. Tales set in Heaven, Hell, Purgatory, and so forth are irrelevant.
- I’ve already thought of Niven’s Ringworld, Abbot’s Flatworld, Tolkien’s Arda (pre-Change of the World), and Lewis’s Narnia.
- Speaking of those last two, while they both qualify I hope no one feels restricted to stories in which the Earth is a plane rather than a globe. Has anybody read anything in which the world is shaped like a Moebius strip, for instace?
- I also just now thought of Pellucidar, but I’m not going to admit that just yet.
What novels and short stories can you think of that are set in a world whose shape is not that of a sphere? (Okay, an oblate spheroid). What about these settings was most memorable or striking to you?
