* In ''Literature/TheGoblinEmperor'', most of Maia's knowledge is not exactly genre-savvy but history-savvy; for example he knows why letting someone rule in his underage nephew's stead would be a very bad idea. However, he also makes mention of blue-backed novels that the cook and her daughters used to smuggle into the country estate where he lived his isolated life. This is how he knows that [[spoiler: the woman he is arranged to marry]] signs her letter in the same way the cavaliers of Edrevenivar the Conqueror did.
