- Moby Dick by Herman Melville - Also called The Whale, apparently. No kidding, we always thought it was also called The Four Masted Schooner From Nantucket. Not sure if this really qualifies, Hermie seems to be the kind of boy who must've written more than this one book.
- Dracula, by Bram Stoker - A genuine OHW. Nary a peep out of old Brammy after his magnum opus. Probably flitting outside our windows every night, looking for a way in.
- Frankenstein by Mary Shelley - A remarkable woman by all accounts, and a remarkable book. An indication of what hanging out with the likes of George and Percy does to one's constitution and temerpament.
- The Scarlet Pimpernel by Baroness Orczy - This is the quintessential OHW. No idea who the woman was. All that is known of her is that one J.R.R.T took one long hard look at the Orczy baroness and decided to name some nice furry creatures after her. Must've been something, eh?
- To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee - Making a triumphant and successful entry into another list, is this classic.
Points to be noted, milard.
- 3 out of 5 are women
- 2.5 out of 5 are horror stories (a whale with a mind of its own, and a captain without one count as a 0.5 horror story)
- Couldn't think of anything else to note, but that didn't stop you from reading this note, did it?
