Crossover Covers: The Duke's Daughter


In this novel set in Anthony Trollope's fictional English county of Barsetshire, Tom Grantly goes to work for the Red Tape and Sealing Wax Dept. Sir Joseph Porter, K.C.M.G., grandson of the well-known First Lord of the Admiralty, is mentioned, as is the county of Loamshire. The Tape and Sealing-Wax Office is from the works of William Makepeace Thackeray. Sir Joseph Porter is the grandson of the character of the same name in Gilbert and Sullivan’s H.M.S. Pinafore. The fictional English county of Loamshire is from George Eliot’s Adam Bede, Felix Holt, and Middlemarch. The fictional Loamshire Regiment appears in several works, including H. C. “Sapper” McNeile’s Bulldog Drummond novels, Evelyn Waugh’s Put Out More Flags and Men at Arms, and the movie The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp.

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!
