* You'd be shocked to learn that the first novel Creator/VCAndrews (Yes, ''[[Literature/FlowersInTheAttic that]]'' V.C. Andrews) ever wrote was ''Gods Of Green Mountain'', a sci-fi novel taking place on another planet.

* You'd be shocked to learn that the first novel Creator/VCAndrews (Yes, ''[[Literature/FlowersInTheAttic that]]'' V.C. Andrews) ever wrote was ''Gods Of Green Mountain'', a sci-fi novel taking place on another planet. It should be noted that it wasn't published until almost twenty years after Andrews' death, probably because it was so different from her work.

* ''Literature/SpectralShadows'' might end up having this if the other serials get written. It can especially be this if one were to read Serial 1, then skip forward to 11.

* Amongst [[AgathaChristie Agatha Christie's]] extensive collection of works is a single book that is not set during the time-period in which she lived: ''Death Comes As The End'', a murder-mystery set in Ancient Eygpt.
* [[RudyardKipling Rudyard Kipling's]] ''Literature/TheJungleBook'' and ''The Second Jungle Book'' are a collection of stories set in India, though each one has a short story that has nothing to do with jungles or India: ''The White Seal'', set in the northern oceans, and ''Quiquern'', which is about huskies and Inuits.
* ''TheChroniclesOfPrydain'' is a five-part series. Of the five, ''Taran Wanderer'' is the only one that doesn't have "The [Noun]" for a title, doesn't feature Princess Eilonwy, and (most importantly) is more of ComingOfAge story than the others, which revolve around a GoodVersusEvil conflict.

* ''TheHorseAndHisBoy'' is the only book in ''TheChroniclesOfNarnia'' that is set entirely within Narnia and its surrounding countries, with protagonists who are born there instead of visitors from ''our'' world.
* A More Perfect Heaven is a fairly typical biography of Copernicus (the astronomer). Two-thirds of the way through, right before the chapter where On the Revolutions was published, there is a sudden genre shift in the form of a three-act screenplay starting where the previous chapter's biography left off. This isn't a short thing either. The performance in audiobook covers a full hour and a half. At the conclusion of the screenplay, the next chapter picks up the biography right where the chapter before the screenplay left off.
* The ''Literature/{{Goosebumps}}'' series had ''How I Learned To Fly''. While most of the other books dealt with kids squaring off against monsters, vampires, ghosts, goblins, ghouls, and other freaky creatures, ''How I Learned to Fly'' doesn't have much in the way of supernatural elements (except for the book that teaches humans how to fly) and the real scares come from the downside of fame (Jack and Wilson become famous for their ability to fly and it cuts into their normal lives) and how greedy people exploit the talented (Jack's father is a talent agent who puts his son in local car dealership commercials).

* The ''Literature/{{Goosebumps}}'' series had ''How I Learnt To Fly''. Amidst the rest of the books, which dealt with monsters, ghosts and aliens, with an emphasis on the grotesque and macabre, often with [[CruelTwistEnding Cruel Twist Endings]] and plenty of terro, ''How I Learnt to Fly'' is about two boys (the protagonist and a bully) who are granted the gift of flight. Constantly overshadowed by the other boy, the protagonist eventually pretends that he's lost his gift - and whilst the bully is hounded for the rest of his life by reporters and scientists, the protagonist gets a RelationshipUpgrade with his best friend (also strange considering most boy/girl friendships in the books were strictly platonic) and a HappyEnding. It reads more like a FairyTale than anything else in the series.
