Golden Cities, Far is an anthology of fantasy short stories, edited by Lin Carter. It was first published in paperback by Ballantine Books in October 1970 as the twenty-second volume of its Ballantine Adult Fantasy series. It was the third such anthology assembled by Carter for the series.

The book collects twelve fantasy tales and poems by various authors, with an overall introduction and notes by Carter. Most of the pieces are ancient or medieval in date, and none later than the nineteenth century. The anthology is a companion volume to Carter's earlier Dragons, Elves, and Heroes (1969), which also collects early fantasies.
