* Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman's Literature/TheDeathGateCycle's second book, Elven Star, features one of these, where all the stars in the sky are [[spoiler: the equivalent of gigantic lighthouse beacons]].
** The world of elemental Water is another example, with the slight difference that the islands are floating in air-bubbles in a vast sea - meaning that people travel around in submarines instead of airships - and the world of elemental Fire is another variation on this theme.
** Even the world of elemental Air apparently is this according to the map, even though the "walls" presumably consist of some kind of force fields rather than solid matter. The final book implies that all the worlds exist in what used to be our solar system, and can be reached through mechanical rockets even after the Death Gate is closed - after you get through the planets' artificial crust, in any case.

* The [=BookWorld=] in the ''Literature/ThursdayNext'' series eventually reboots and turns into one of these in ''One Of Our Thursdays Is Missing''. Used to be the various books were floating in space independent of each other, but they now occupy a single continent.

* The [=BookWorld=] in the ''Literature/ThursdayNext'' series eventually reboots and turns into one of these in ''One Of Our Thursdays Is Missing''. Used to be the various books were essentially pocket worlds floating in space independent independently of each other, only connected by a library acting as a dimensional nexus of sorts, but they now occupy the surface of a hollow world, with the various subdivisions of literature -- Fiction, Poetry, Mythology, Non-Ficition, etcetera -- each occupying a single continent.

* An unfalsifiable (and therefore scientifically irrelevant) claim is that the earth is in fact a hollow sphere with the universe inside and geometry transformed to match (i.e. the closer in you go, the smaller you get).

Added DiffLines:

* Downplayed with the discontinued world of Tharun in ''TheDarkEye'', which was actually an alternate universe (with its own gods and celestial bodies), whose only gates were reached through deep caverns. So it felt like a hollow earth, although it wasn't.

* Due to a combination of its gravitic and atmospheric oddities, the world of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mesklin Mesklin]] in Creator/HalClement's hard sci fi classic ''Mission of Gravity'' was thought by its inhabitants to be bowl-shaped. They were incorrect (it was actually a very flattened spheroid).

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/TheWorldAndThorinn'', there are many worlds within the Earth with the lower ones having less of a pull of gravity due to almost as much material being overhead as underfoot.

He also wrote ''Literature/TheMoonMaid'', in which the first spacecraft from Earth to land on the Moon discovers that it is hollow, with a living internal world that can be reached by descending through certain craters.
