Isola may refer to :

Isola (fictional city)

Isola is a section of a fictional city that is the setting for the 87th Precinct series of police procedural novels written by Ed McBain ( pseudonym of Evan Hunter).

The city is based on New York City, and similarly, has five sections, corresponding with the five boroughs of New York: Isola ( Manhattan), Bethtown ( Staten Island), Calm's Point ( Brooklyn), Majesta ( Queens), and Riverhead ( Bronx). It has two major rivers, the Harb and the Dix, which inexplicably flow in a westerly direction despite the fact that Isola is on the East Coast.

McBain's obituary in the Times described Isola as being more than just a copy of New York, saying it lived in its own right. In contrast, Gary Hausladen states that whilst Isola is an obvious replica of New York, it does not have a strong sense of reality, suggesting that McBain's aim was to create an intentionally generic urban setting. However, McBain offered details about Isola that drew parallels to New York City. On at least one occasion he tells the story how Riverhead (The Bronx) got its name after a farmer called Ryerhurt. The borrough The Bronx also got its name after a farmer, a Mr. Bronck of Swedish origin.

Isola (album)

Isola is an album released in 1997 by the Swedish band Kent. It was followed in 1998 by an English version, for which a new song, "Velvet", was recorded. The album name comes from Ed McBains books about the 87:th police district and is a paraphrase for New York city, and Isola is mentioned in the song "Oprofessionell"/"Unprofessional". The album is said to have been largely influenced by Radiohead despite the difference in its sound. The ending song from the album, 747, has become a fan favourite and is usually one of the songs Kent use to close their concerts.

Isola (board game)

Isola is a two-player abstract strategy board game. It is played on a 7x7 board which is initially filled with squares, except at the starting positions of the pieces. Both players have one piece; it is in the middle position of the row closest to his/her side of the board.

A move consists of two subsequent actions:

  1. Moving one's piece to a neighboring (horizontally, vertically, or diagonally) position that contains a square but not the opponent's piece
  2. Removing any square with no piece on it, similar to the arrow effect in Game of the Amazons.

The player who cannot make any move loses the game.
