* ComicallyMissingThePoint: A popular myth is that when ''Literature/AliceInWonderland'' was published at the same time as a book of his on mathematical theory, QueenVictoria was so charmed by ''Alice'' that she requested Carroll produce another book like his latest. A short time later he sent her a new math textbook, hot off the presses. When Carroll heard the story, he said that he wished it had happened.

Not the right place to be soapboxing about hunting, unless this is a joke I'm not getting.
Real name Reverend Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (1832-1898), he was the author of ''Literature/AlicesAdventuresInWonderland'' and its sequel, ''[[Literature/ThroughTheLookingGlass Through the Looking Glass, and what Alice Found There]]''.

QueenVictoria was so charmed by ''Alice'' that she requested Carroll produce another book like his latest. A short time later he sent her a new math textbook, hot off the presses. ** This story, though entertaining, is sadly apocryphal. Dodgson was asked about it and said that though he wished it had happened, it did not. * FriendToAllChildren: Especially the ''real'' Alice. ** [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gertrude_Chataway Gertrude Chataway]] was also a close friend. * HeAlsoDid: Aside from his work in mathematics, he was also an Anglican deacon and in his time, a well-known photographer.

* RotatingArcs: When you start reading the puzzle-story sequence "A Tangled Tale", originally serialised in ''The Monthly Packet'', it appears that each "Knot" (chapter) is a seperate one-off story. It's not until Knot IV that we return to the characters from Knot I, and it slowly becomes apparent that the whole thing is indeed a single [[KudzuPlot tangled tale]]. * SameFaceDifferentName: His books on mathematics were published under his real name, Charles Dodgeson. But when it came time for him to write fantasy novels, he used the name "Lewis Carroll", the name by which he is far better known today.
