Fairy Lands Forlorn
Of perilous seas in fairy lands forlorn.
-copied from here.
I want to see:
a moving picture of the view through such a magic casement;
a narrative written with the skills of a Poul Anderson about a voyage across perilous seas in fairy lands forlorn.
A "magic" casement might be located in our world but show a view in another world. The narrative would have to retain a sense of magic, peril and the "forlorn" until the last page. "...fairy lands..." suggests not just one Fairyland but a world with several countries and sea voyages between them.
In CS Lewis' The Voyage Of The Dawn Treader, the children go not through a casement but into a picture.
