Speculative fiction presents authors with a truly dazzling array of environments for their settings. This week, we talk about some of those wonderlands and what value they add to the story. From the spooky forests of New England to the cratered surface of the moon, we discuss how environments can affect a story for good or ill. If that’s not enough for you, then fantastic environments are on the menu as well. We consider mushroom forests, undersea domes, and the strange prevalence of demonic hounds upon the moor.
