    Where would you go?

    My pick has got to be All-World (Dark Tower series) either a year before the cataclysm that made the world move on, or as part of Roland's Ka-Tet. Death seems a small price to pay.

    pretty much anywhere you can think of would be a distinct improvement on the world we're living in right now.

    Remember the scene in "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" where one of the knights (can't remember which) is accidentally rescued by his mates from a castle full of horny women?

    That's where I want to visit.

    Atlantis, presuming it qualifies as fictional.
    The culture they must have had...

    I'd create my own world. One that ties all the fictional worlds of many video games together. There I'd have my soul tortured by Mirrigan and Lillith as I stayed captive in their dungeon.:cool:

    I once read a series of novells about a race of human-like beings who were highly advanced, and used machines to create pockett universes and mould them to their own tastes, and live amoung the inhabitants they create as their God, or watch them from afar.

    As the series progressed, it became apparent that Earth was one of these universes, and the creator was a reclusive who lived in a mansion near Hollywood IIRC.

    I'd love the machines they used - I'd create my own world full of incredibly horny human beings who were all bisexual, and create a beautifull roman-style city in a meditarranien style island for us all to live on. With lush gardens, crystal clear water flowing through shallow channels throughout the city, and white marble mansions where the the perminant summer breeze would gentle flow through the lofty rooms.

    Then when I got bored of that, I'd make new pocket universes and link them all together, so I could hop between them at will.

    Toss up between Camelot and Rivendell.. though I can't help wonder if the former may in some small way have inspired the latter...
