Famous (and forgotten) Fiction

Welcome to Famous (and forgotten) Fiction, a website devoted to old and often obscure tales from the past. Here you will find stories and books that have echoed in popular culture for hundreds of years, as well as works that have lingered in undeserved obscurity. Four-color fiction is not neglected; you'll find several examinations of the comic book and newspaper strips of yesterday. Collections of intriguing images are also at hand, including book and comic covers. Background materials (author biographies and bibliographic reference) are also freely available, as are fascinating articles on a diverse range of subjects.
Plan on multiple visits to our musty archives—Happy reading!
