Summary/Abstract: An essay inspired by Lubomír Doležel’s Heterocosmica: Fiction and Possible Worlds presents – in part polemically – the essential features of the theory of fictional worlds (including clear definitions of the terms “actual,” “possible,” and “fictional” worlds), and, following on from this, it interprets the short story “Muzeum tety Laury” (Aunt Laura’s Museum) from František Langer’s collection Malířské povídky (A painter’s tales).
