* ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive'':
** The first book, ''Literature/TheWayOfKings'', is named after an in-universe book written by an ancient king teaching what it means to rule. The Knights Radiant used it as the basis of their Orders. It is considered borderline heretical in modern Alethkar, since it teaches such ridiculous things as "[[AristocratsAreEvil nobles should act responsibly]]" and "[[BloodKnight fighting isn't always the best solution]]."
** The second book, ''Literature/WordsOfRadiance'', is named after an in-universe book chronicling the history of the Knights Radiant, their abilities, and their ethics. It was written a few centuries after the Orders had already fallen, though, so it's not perfectly reliable.

** Blackadder has himself written his own novel: ''Edmund: A Butler's Tale''. "A sizzling depiction of domestic servitude in the eighteenth-century, with some hot gypsies thrown in".



** ''Everybody Wants to Talk'' by Gilgamesh Wulfenbach's spymaster, published by Extremis Press. The author describes it 'a vanity project from my youth'. It has since been added to Forbidden Stacks of the Immortal Library, and simply realising that they are face-to-face with the author makes one suspect confess immediately.

* [[Wiki/SCPFoundation SCP-701]], otherwise known as "[[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-701 The Hanged King's Tragedy]]". It's a fictional play around since 1640, the plot of which is described [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp7011640b1 here]]. It being an SCP item, performing the play runs the risk of incredibly bloody and graphic events unfolding. Also, [[ParanoiaFuel copies are still in circulation and are occasionally found under different titles]].

* [[Wiki/SCPFoundation SCP-701]], The Wiki/SCPFoundation:
** [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-140 SCP-140]] details the history of ancient history of the evil Daeva empire. Unfortunately, SCP-140 allows that history to become ''less'' ancient, since it's a RealityWritingBook which [[{{Retconjuration}} retroactively extends the history of the empire forwards in time]] by writing more about Daeva any time it comes in contact with fluid capable of being used for writing (which includes blood). If the book's history ever catches up with the present day, then our current reality would cease to be, replaced with one where the Daeva rule.

Added DiffLines:

* Although not many appear in the game itself, a few characters' lores from ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends'' are taken as extracts from in-universe documents, such as Cecil B. Heimerdinger's daily journals or a Zaunite field report of an attempt to track down Twitch (it doesn't go well). A few other characters simply have brief quotes, such as from the Noxian war report describing Irelia's OneManArmy stand.

* ''The Grasshopper Lies Heavy'' from ''Literature/TheManInTheHighCastle'', a popular AlternateHistory novel within the story that becomes very important to the plot. Given that ''The Man In The High Castle'' is an alternate history itself, this means that ''The Grasshopper'' depicts a world similar to our own (though not the same).

* The ''Pridelands'' series from ''Webcomic/{{Housepets}}'', an epic ''Game of Thrones''-esque series with various big cat species, written specifically to appeal to cats (in a universe where all animals are anthropomorphised and sentient). It turns out that this is partly because it was written by a cat. Grape and Maxwell are stated fans of the series, and given their discussions of it it appears to have a very complicated mythos. Peanut takes an interest as well, and several of the other dogs admit to have found '[[BlatantLies only a couple of bits of it]]' interesting.
