While there is no official, unified map for the world of Malazan, that has not stopped fans from constructing their own maps drawing from conjectures and clues in Malazan Book of the Fallen. Now, one especially crafty fan has taken that experiment a step further by making the world (affectionately and informally referred to as “Wu”) three-dimensional.
Redditor Feners_Hairy_Balls* bought a chalkboard globe and proceeded to draw the known areas of the Malazan world on its surface, then shared her fannish geographical work with r/fantasy and r/Malazan. Check out the globe in action:
You’ll notice that there is a vast swath of the globe, around the Domain Ocean, that is virtually unexplored. Feners_Hairy_Balls used this fan-made map of the known areas of the Malazan planet, constructed by fans based on series descriptions, as reference. This post from The Wertzone lists locations and which books take place in them (note that it was last updated in 2015):
- Genabackis: Gardens of the Moon, Memories of Ice, House of Chains (prologue), Toll the Hounds, Orb Sceptre Throne
- Seven Cities: Deadhouse Gates, House of Chains, The Bonehunters
- Quon Tali/Malaz Isle: The Bonehunters, Night of Knives, Return of the Crimson Guard
- Western Seven Cities: The Bonehunters
- Lether: Midnight Tides, Reaper’s Gale, Dust of Dreams
- Eastern Lether/Kolanse: Dust of Dreams, The Crippled God
- Korelri: Stonewielder
- Jacuruku: Blood and Bone
- Stratem: Return of the Crimson Guard, Assail
- Assail/Bael: Return of the Crimson Guard, Assail
Have fun searching out every location on the globe and guessing at what remains to be discovered!
