Five top books to transport you to other worlds

Tade Thompson lives and works in the south of England. He is the author of the Rosewater trilogy (winner of the Nommo Award and John W. Campbell finalist), The Murders of Molly Southbourne (nominated for the Shirley Jackson Award, the British Science Fiction Award, and the Nommo Award), and Making Wolf (winner of the Golden Tentacle Award).

At the Guardian, he tagged five of the best books to transport you to other worlds, including:
Robert Macfarlane takes us on an evocative journey through the dark spaces of the underworld in Underland, a poetic, sometimes psychedelic exploration of the planet we live on that travels through geology, myth and history. Danger and death lurk in this exploration of time and place, as well as the beauty of Macfarlane’s lush prose. This is a book you can get lost in – a perfect way to escape the quarantine and be back in time for supper.
