Ten random things: November 13

Ten fictional California cities:

  1. San Andreo (The West Wing)
  2. Neptune (Veronica Mars)
  3. Glen Oak (7th Heaven)
  4. Dimmsdale (The Fairly OddParents)
  5. Rattown (Dr. Adder by K. W. Jeter)
  6. Coast City (Green Lantern)
  7. Hill Valley (Back to the Future and sequels)
  8. San Angeles (Demolition Man)
  9. Santa Teresa (Kinsey Milhone novels by Sue Grafton)
  10. Cuesta Verde (Poltergeist and sequels)

There's at least one place in California that is both real and fictional: Pine Cove. The real Pine Cove is a community in the San Jacinto Mountains, near Idyllwild; the fake one is in the Big Sur region, and is the setting of three different novels by Christopher Moore.
