Hi

Where do I post a question to learn if anyone knows of existing novels, in any genre, that have a fairly specific plot?

Edit: Sorry, I may have found the answer for myself. Thanks for reading.

You can post it here, in this thread, and then a mod will move it where it goes.

That's what they get paid for. Sorting out threads.

As much I use it for checking the original text of something, Project Gutenberg is helpful for sorting out which classic archetypes I may be drawing on. There are excellent forums dedicated to books, SF, horror, etc. where people who have spent a lifetime studying a specific genre will come up with answers which touch upon some very obscure novels. A library ticket is also an essential piece of any writers' kit.

I want to see what other suggestions people have for this specific problem.

Mods get paid?

(No, they do not; the poor souls get drafted and are not paid)

The mods don't get paid, but they do get their very own personalized shock collars. (Not to mention they get Mac's name branded on their--um, arms.)

So, does anyone have the answer to the original question?
