Novella

The Last Homely Housekeeper by Rolf Luchs. It's already on the Best Novella shortlist at the Sir Julius Vogel Awards (for NZ speculative fiction) and had a good review on Salon. As long as you're open to a self-published unauthorized Tolkien satire . . .

Related Works

Here are a couple of works to consider:

Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey
This could conceivably be put into Dramatic Presentation, but I think it is more appropriate here.

Little Nemo: Dream Another Dream
This gorgeous art book pays tribute to the pioneer of comics and animation, Winsor McCay. This is truly one of the most beautiful art books I've seen.
