* ''Vertical'' by Rafał Kosik is an unusual variant: Due to some unspecified phenomenon ([[spoiler:[[NiceJobBreakingItHero possibly caused by the protagonits]]]]) the world is turned into infinite sky [[spoiler:and infinite ocean]] full of vertical "strings" of infinite lenght. There are at least two large landmasses, whith ended up suspended on strings that penetrated them, as well as number of mechanical "cities" slowly climbing up.

* British Gas sold itself via TV advertising using the [[https://vimeo.com/147127244 Your Home Is Your World]] theme, in which each individual customer's home was portrayed as a planet individual to itself, connected by British Gas and its fleet of spacecraft/service vans. Britain effectively became a country of Worlds In The sky for advertising purposes.

Impossible[[note]]or nearly impossible--see ''The Integral Trees'' under Literature[[/note]] under physics resembling ours, worlds of this type are ''usually'' found exclusively in fantasy. What keeps them hovering? Where does the gravity come from? What's keeping the atmosphere in place? [[LostTechnology Nobody knows]], but maybe AWizardDidIt. Do not expect the outcome of falling off the side of one of these pieces to be properly explored. Sci-fi version will generally be landmass floating inside gas giant's atmosphere.

**One episode has the heroes dealing with [[GeniusLoci an island]][[TurtleIsland -shaped dragon]] [[SingleSpecimenSpecies so rare it is considered a myth]]. After it is killed, it floats away as Lian-Chu says (paraphrased) "A dragon dies, an island is born", implying that some, if not all, of the [[FloatingContinent Floating Continents]] are dead dragons of that species.

* In ''Minla's Flowers'' by Creator/AlastairReynolds, the protagonist is forced to land on a world with dozens of floating continents: the shattered remnants of a shield designed to camouflage the actual surface from the AbsoluteXenophobe Huskers. The camouflage fragments have some form of anti-gravity, allowing them to hover several thousand meters in the air, where they have flipped over and subsequently gathered water and vegetation. The fragments hold a human society that uses zeppelins and primitive airplanes for travel.
