Top 100 Fiction Books in Toowoomba

A fictional book is a text created specifically for a work in an imaginary narrative that is referred to, depicted, or excerpted in a story, book, film, or other fictional work, and which exists only in one or more fictional works. A fictional book may be created to add realism or depth to a larger fictional work. For example, George Orwell’s novel Nineteen Eighty-Four has excerpts from a book by Emmanuel Goldstein entitled The Theory and Practice of Oligarchical Collectivism which provides background on concepts explored in the novel (both the named author (Goldstein) and the text on collectivism are made up by Orwell).

A fictional book may provide the basis of the plot of a story, a common thread in a series of books or other works, or the works of a particular writer or canon of work. An example of a fictional book that is part of the plot of another work (in addition to Nineteen Eighty-Four) is Philip K. Dick’s The Man in the High Castle, in which resistance member circulate a banned book entitled The Grasshopper Lies Heavy. An example of a fictional book linking a series is Encyclopedia Galactica, an imaginary set of encyclopedias created by Isaac Asimov and referred to in the novels in his Foundation Series. An example of an author referring to a fictional book in a number of unconnected works is Jack Vance’s quotes from an imaginary twelve-volume opus entitled Life by Unspiek, Baron Bodissey in Vance’s novels (Bodissey is a fictional character created by Vance).

The Necronomicon in H. P. Lovecraft’s books serves as a repository of recondite and evil knowledge in many of his works and the work of others. Despite the evident tongue-in-cheek origin of the book, supposedly written by the “Mad Arab Abdul al-Hazred,” who was supposed to have died by being torn apart by an invisible being in an Arab marketplace in broad daylight, many have been led to believe that the book is real.

William Goldman’s The Princess Bride is presented as an abridgment of The Princess Bride by “S. Morgenstern”.

The story of Philip K. Dick’s The Man in the High Castle revolves around another mysterious and forbidden book, written by the title character (Hawthorne Abendsen), named The Grasshopper Lies Heavy. Dick’s book describes an alternate history where the Axis Powers were victorious in World War II and the United States has been divided between Japan and Nazi Germany. The book-within-a-book is an alternate history itself, depicting a world in which the Allies won the war but which is nonetheless different from our own world in several important respects. Towards the end of the story, Abendsen admits to writing The Grasshopper Lies Heavy under the direction of the I Ching (which influenced The Man in the High Castle as well).

All of the stories in Robert W. Chambers’ 1895 collection The King in Yellow feature a fictional play of the same name, which drives all readers mad and/or shows them another reality. Very little of the play is transcribed in the stories, although it is shown to be set in the kingdom of Carcosa, created by Ambrose Bierce.

Guillaume Apollinaire’s short fiction “L’Hérésiarque” (“The Heresiarch” or “The Heretic”) describes two heretical Christian gospels written by the excommunicated Catholic cardinal Benedetto Orfei. Orfei’s heresy is that the three figures of the Trinity—the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit—were incarnate in Jesus’ time, and were crucified alongside him. Orfei’s first work is The True Gospel, describing the human life of God the Father, an embodiment of virtue about whom little is known. Orfei’s second work describes the human life of God the Holy Spirit; the title of this work is not mentioned, but is referred to only as his ‘second gospel’. In this ‘gospel,’ the Holy Spirit is a thief who willfully indulges in all manner of vice, including violating a sleeping virgin who then gives birth to Jesus Christ, or God the Son. Later, both the Holy Spirit and the Father are arrested as thieves and crucified, the latter unjustly. Orfei’s heresy is intended to illustrate man’s contradictory but coexistent aspects of sinner and martyr.
