* The ''Literature/AlexisCarew'' series is what ''Literature/HonorHarrington'' would be, if the setting was even more forced to be ''Literature/HoratioHornblower'' [-IN SPACE-]. Ships have actual sails that are set by hand, [[SubspaceOrHyperspace darkspace]] is treated like [[SpaceIsAnOcean an ocean]] with currents and "shoals". In darkspace, ships are navigated by dead reckoning (effectively making guesses) and fire broadsides at one another using hand-loaded cannons. Even the official currency is based on the pre-decimal British system, likely confusing many modern readers.

And every single ship part is given an archaic naval name (to the point where a ship's mechanic is called a carpenter despite using a 3D printer instead of wood), causing Alexis to frequently get confused by seemingly made up words like "futtock".

* The novel ''Literature/{{Inferno}}'' by Creator/LarryNiven and Jerry Pournelle, is ''Literature/TheDivineComedy'' with DeadToBeginWith, sci-fi GenreSavvy protagonist instead of Dante who tries (unsuccessfully) to explain Hell as LostTechnology or an "Infernoland" created by aliens. His guide isn't Virgil, but UsefulNotes/BenitoMussolini. Additions to the original include a Hellish version of a CelestialBureaucracy in which damned souls as well as demons work, new torments for [[StrawmanPolitical both extreme environmentalists and wanton environment-destroyers]], and the theologically questionable revelation that anyone can escape Hell through redemption and sincere effort.
