Have you read The Tough Guide to Fantasyland by Diana Wynne Jones? It's written as a guidebook for tourists to Fantasyland. She also wrote Dark Lord of Derkholm, in which she cheerfully puts most of these elements in the book, but there's a damn good reason...someone from Earth IS running tours in a magical world!

Oh my yes....

I've needed these lists for a very long time. Thank you dear!
