SHERIFF OF NOTTINGHAM
Plenty of versions of Robin Hood out there, and many actors have played the ol' sheriff, but I happen to prefer Alan Rickman's portrayal in Prince of Thieves.

C.S. Lewis' fictional world inside the wardrobe. I've always adored this concept. And the fabulous world of Narnia is so full of delightful whimsy, any writer who comes in contact with it takes instant inspiration. And I particularly love the centaurs.
