A parody travel guide that pokes fun at traditional fantasy tropes as it takes the reader through "Fantasyland." Her story, Darklord of Derkholm, was based off this story.

As our guide puts it: "Find the map. It will be there. No Tour of Fantasyland is complete without one. It will be found in the front part of your brochure,…"

This appears to be an upside-down Europe; try holding the map so that Up is Up.

Note the map in the 2nd edition is similar in spirit, and also modeled on Europe, but distinct in detail.
