Magic Closets, Hellmouths, and Rabbit Holes: A Commuter’s Guide to Interdimensional Travel

Transporting from one world to another is a mainstay of fantasy and science fiction, whether it's via the extra-roomy closet in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe or the quantum-leaping fedoras in the new film The Adjustment Bureau.
