List Criteria: Vote up your favorite fictional universes in literature, film, and TV

This is a list of the most awesome, spectacular, and entertaining fantasy worlds created. These fantasy worlds are not always just from books, but also from movies and fantasy games, too. This is a ranking of the greatest, most imaginative worlds ever dreamed up. Vote for your favorite mythical worlds, and add fantasy world names that you notice are missing. And certainly, feel free to re-rank this list in any order you want.

Some of the most iconic fantasy worlds ever created are those from books (and many have some pretty fun names as well). We all owe a debt of gratitude to the best fantasy authors for dreaming up these exotic lands. Some fantasy lands, like Middle Earth, Dune, and Narnia, made incredibly successful jumps from fantasy fiction to film. They are absolutely worthy of inclusion among the greatest fantasy movies of all time. Others, like Terra Nova (from FOX's ill-fated TV show of the same name), intrigued, but failed to prove popular enough to stay on the air. Terra Nova, sadly, joins this list of great TV shows canceled before their time.

What fantasy world do you think is the greatest ever? That's certainly subjective. Fans of Star Wars and Star Trek could probably argue back and forth about this for decades. Oh, wait, they have!

Anyway, just vote. It's time to decide, once and for all, which fantasy world is the best ever created.
