Missing Links and Secret Histories(2013)
A Selection of Wikipedia Entries from Across the Known Multiverse
A non fiction book by L Timmel Duchamp
Missing Links and Secret Histories: A Selection of Wikipedia Entries from across the Known Multiverse is an anthology of short fictions by Nisi Shawl, Anna Tambour, Lucy Sussex, Mark Rich, and others. Ever wonder who that frequent addressee of Anglophone Nineteenth-century narrators, ''Dear Reader,'' really was? Or about the true story on which Edgar Allan Poe based his melodramatic '''Fall of the House of Usher''? Perhaps it never occurred to you to wonder whether there might have been a relationship between H.G. Wells' supposedly fictional Dr. Moreau and Joseph Conrad's supposedly fictional Col. Kurtz. Missing Links and Secret Histories elucidates these and other mysteries (some admittedly obscure). It even includes excerpts from lost or suppressed manuscripts scholars have not even suspected exist, such as ''The V Manuscript'' written by the Marquis de Sade in 1783 while imprisoned in the Chateau de Vincennes.
