The Last Days of New Paris

scifi: Paris in 1950 is simultaneously overrun by weird surrealist creatures and occupied by Nazis (with some French resistance). turns out that in 1941, a chain of events led to the accidental activation of a magical device that turned ("manifested") the Surrealist drawings of a French Resistance group into reality. the climax is when the Nazis try to manifest a version of Adolf Hitler.

Afterword
On Coming to Write The Last Days of New Paris

you'd think this would be a straightforward case of factual peritext but in fact IT'S PART OF THE TEXT ITSELF (i.e., it's fictional) whoa

Some Manifs, Details, and their Sources

basically a glossary explaining all the Surrealist cameos in the book (I didn't really recognise any of them tbh)
