For years, Allan G. Turner has contributed to the academic study of the field of Fantasy literature, with special focus on the works of J.R.R. Tolkien. His colleagues and friends, in co-operation with Walking Tree Publishers, have thus decided to honour him with a festschrift on the occasion of his 65th birthday. The volume comprises contributions by Tom A. Shippey, Wolfram R. Keller, Andrew 'Chunky' Liston, Julian M. Eilmann, Doreen Triebel, James Fanning, Thomas Honegger, and Dirk Vanderbeke, who explore the various aspects of the creation of secondary worlds in literature medieval to modern. Geoffrey Chaucer, Robert Burns, Jack Vance, Terry Pratchett, Jasper Fforde and H.P. Lovecraft are the subjects of individual case-studies, which are complemented by two papers looking at the connections between Romantic world-building and Tolkien's theory of "secondary worlds" and "sub-creation", and the role of London in some central texts of "urban fantasy" respectively.
