* ''Webcomic/{{Opplopolis}}'' is pretty [[ThomasPynchon Pynchonesque]] in general, but for example, a race of aliens are [[http://www.opplopolis.com/issues/3/2 initially introduced]] as an apparent fantasy of Marvin's but return [[http://www.opplopolis.com/issues/7/3 four issues later]], apparently aware of the characters in the comic, including events that haven't happened yet. These aliens live in a city called Oppleopolis (with an "e").

* ''WesternAnimation/Ameri'' started becoming post-modern, such as many of the things Roger does.

* Shoji Kawamori waffles on this with his ''[[Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross Macross]]'' franchise in a unique way. Remember how ''Do You Remember Love?'' was said to be an in-universe movie production of the events of the series? Turns out that's kind of how he views ''everything'' in the franchise. ''Nothing'' is canon because they're ''all'' in-universe productions based on real events that we never see. In effect, it's as if you're learning history and your only method of doing so is by watching movies. This does mean Macross technically avoids any AlternateContinuity, regardless of if you watch say ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'' the series, the movies, read the three or four different mangas, or the light novels. They're all exactly that, productions based on a real event. Kawamori seems okay to [[ShrugOfGod let the fans fanwank something]], and only ever suggests this notion when an interviewer asks point blank about the differences between DYRL/SDFM or ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'' series/movies.

* Creator/PhilipKDick 's novel ''Literature/{{VALIS}}''. When the novel begins, Dick opens by saying that it is a fictionalized account of his own encounters with Gnosticism/his schizophrenia, and he is writing the book to get a perspective on himself. The fictionalized version of himself is named Horselover Fat ("Philip" being Greek for "horse lover" and "Dick" being German for "fat"), and the book begins from Fat's perspective. Over time, however he begins to write in the first person including excerpts from his unpublished Exegesis. Eventually, Dick becomes the main character of the story and he interacts with his own fictionalized clone.
** As well as most of Dick's works, especially the now-Amazon-series-adapted ''Literature/TheManInTheHighCastle''.

* ''Literature/{{The New York Trilogy}}'' by Paul Auster is a post-modern trilogy of mystery novels.
** At the beginning of the first novel of the trilogy, ''City of Glass'', the main character receives a call from someone looking for a private detective named... Paul Auster. The main character later meets the character named Auster, but it is left unclear whether Auster is [[MediumAwareness aware]] that he is the author.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Theatre/McQueenOrLeeAndBeauty'', which also hits into the surrealist and absurdist movements. Its presentation (dancing mannequin props/stagehands/characters?) is not only what grounds it in the postmodern - the development of the story and the unique influence is a very postmodern factor, too.
