Crossover Cover: Before Lunch


Sir Ogilvy Hibberd, who seeks to buy Pooker’s Piece in Barsetshire, lives in “The Cedars,” Muswell Hill, which had come into the market on the death of Mrs. C. Augustus Fortescue (Fifi), only child and heiress of Bunyan, First Baron Alberfylde. Mrs. Starter is the daughter of Lord Mickleham. Like many of Thirkell’s books, this novel is set in the titular locale from Anthony Trollope’s The Chronicles of Barsetshire series. The Cedars, Charles Augustus Fortescue, Fifi, and Bunyan, First Lord Alberfylde are from the poem “Charles Augustus Fortescue,” included in Hilaire Belloc’s Cautionary Tales for Children. Lord Mickleham is from Anthony Hope’s The Dolly Dialogues.

This crossover is one of hundreds covered in my book Crossovers Expanded: A Secret Chronology of the World Volume 3, which will be published by Meteor House! All three volumes are AUTHORIZED companions to Win Scott Eckert's Crossovers: A Secret Chronology of the World Volumes 1 and 2!
