Here's a link to an interesting Salon story about books that have never really existed except in other books.

Very nice find.

We had a conversation about this topic in one of the other LT groups recently and had all sorts of examples. Maybe we can come up with some more?

Great article varielle thanks. I hadn't really thought about this before, now I'm really excited about the whole concept of the 'Invisible Library' and am tempted to start making a note of all the imaginary books I come across from now on! : )
