Themis-Athena's Garden of Books
Wouldn't Gabriel García Marquez qualify for this, too? And also a few books by Salman Rushdie ("The Satanic Verses," "Midnight's Children," possibly "The Moor's Last Sigh")?

Thanks -- and apologies for offering these up so piecemeal ...!
Murder by Death
No worries at all - I'm just glad we're getting such great lists together. I also had the thought that if these are all in your personal library, I'm definitely "stopping by" next time I'm in NL, lol. (kidding of course, I never stalk. *grin*)

Hah! Honey pot time! :D Well, some of these are. The others are on my TBR / Amazon wishlist ...
