* Twain makes a very short appearance in an early volume of ''ComicBook/TheUnwritten'', a story where an AncientConspiracy has spent centuries trying to take control of the very essence of imagination itself, with the end goal of shaping and using it for their own ends. [[spoiler:Except for their immortal DragonInChief Pullman, who is trying to kill off imagination itself [[DragonWithAnAgenda for reasons of his own.]] To aid in this, they recruit influential storytellers as {{Unwitting Pawn}}s. Twain tells Creator/RudyardKipling that he was aware of the conspiracy before they approached him and [[ObfuscatingStupidity pretended to be a country bumpkin]] until they gave up recruiting him and just left him alone. Kipling wasn't nearly so fortunate.

!! ''Personal Recollections of Joan of Arc'' (1896) * FirstPersonPeripheralNarrator: Told from the perspective of Joan's page, Louis de Contes * MagnumOpusDissonance: "I like ''Joan of Arc'' best of all my books; and it is the best; I know it perfectly well. And besides, it furnished me seven times the pleasure afforded me by any of the others; twelve years of preparation, and two years of writing. The others needed no preparation and got none." !!

I changed the Tina Fey quote to a quote that was 1, Actually relevant, and 2, By Mark Twain.
-> ''"My greatest hope is that, just like Mark Twain, people will one day look at my work and say, 'Wow, that's actually pretty racist.'"'' -->--'''Creator/TinaFey'''
