Cross Over: Literature

  • Win Scott Eckert documents a vast number of crossover stories that can all be demonstrated as fitting into the same world in the two-volume timeline Crossovers: A Secret Chronology of the World.
  • Ally Carter's novella "Double Cross" crosses over her The Gallagher Girls and Heist Society series.
  • The book Garfield's Christmas Tales contains a story in which Garfield, during a Christmas trip to the Arbuckle family farm, pays a visit to U.S. Acres (which happens to be right next door to the Arbuckle farm) and helps Orson, Wade, and Roy win a snowball fight against Orson's brothers.
  • The 1995 novel H: The Story of Heathcliff's Journey Back to Wuthering Heights crosses over the two Bronte sister classics Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights.
  • Long before the Marvel comics put two Robert E. Howard barbarian heroes together, Howard himself did it: in the Bran Mak Morn story Kings of the Night, Kull of Atlantis makes a special guest appearance. He and Bran team up against the Roman Legions invading Britain.
  • Two minor Percy Jackson and the Olympians Characters, Drew and Lacy appeared in the Serpent's Shadow, after two books worth of hinting that the two series took place in the same universe.
    • As of the short story The Son of Sobek, Percy and Carter have met one another. Carter even left a hieroglyph on Percy's hand that could summon him should the need arise.
  • Just about every Sandra Dallas book includes mentions of characters from previous books. Many times, the connections are so minuscule, it takes a discerning reader to spot them.
  • There are a large number of Sherlock Holmes Cross Over pastiches, including at least three that pit the Great Detective against Dracula.
  • Star Trek: Federation justifies its crossover between Star Trek: The Original Series and The Next Generation by means of a Negative Space Wedgie.
  • War of the Worlds: Global Dispatches crosses over H.G. Wells' "War of the Worlds" with the characters from The Jungle Book and John Carter of Mars among others.
  • Wold Newton is all about this.
