Hello everyone!
I'm Shawn from sunny England. I'm an avid sci-fi & fantasy fan & reader; Tolkien, Vance and the like.
I'm looking to buy large maps of fantasy worlds for my new home (i have an extensive hallway). Middle Earth, in whole or parts of, especially. I've only just got here and haven't looked around yet - maybe I can get these things here?

I wonder if anyone can also help me with something else, I am currently rereading Vance's Dying Earth tales and fancy looking at a map of his world. I'm sure i've seen one somewhere but lost the page. A google search turns up false positives. Sarah Wroot, I thank may have designed one.
Can any of you help with either of these please?
Many thanks :D

Pip, pip, cheerio, mate!

(Yes, I am ashamed of myself.)

As far as Dying Earth maps go, I hit Google myself and indeed it looks like nothing is showing up as an image on the net. However, it appears that there are Dying Earth maps available in Dying Earth RPG products. Specifically, there's a "speculative" world map in the #4&5 double issue of The Excellent Prismatic Spray.

Welcome to the guild!

There are several Middle Earth maps in the Gallery, as well as some great maps of Eddings, Martin, and more.

Welcome Aboard!

One of the members here,Toff, has done some stuff with Vance-based maps. Look for his postings in the Finished Map Forums.

anyhoo back to OP...

Sunny England you say. This must be England (asia) or England (the middle east) or maybe England (Venus) or something. I hail from Rainy England tho ;)

Oh yes I am also an Admin for the [www.me-dem.org]ME-Dem[/url] project too which is the middle earth digital elevation model group which is making a huge, ludicrously big ME map... and its a free one too :)

So ill point you at that - not that its very active you understand...

But you can get at this map...
