At the core of the metaphor of being transported lie readers' subjective reports of having left the real world behind when visiting narrative worlds. In earlier chapters, I provided anecdotal evidence that there are genuine discontinuities of experience associated with these visits. Here, I match experiment to anecdote in an attempt to document these claims, providing case studies of narrative experiences that have most often been explained by reference to special psychological processes. I hope to demonstrate that general and basic aspects of psychological structure give rise to readers' feelings of being transported.
