Solar Eclipse Fiction

I was thinking about books that feature solar eclipses, and the one that immediately came to mind was Jane Langton's Dark Nantucket Noon (Homer Kelly #2). I haven't read it in many years, but I do remember the opening scene with the eclipse. Thought I'd make a short list of some Eclipse Novels--not all mystery.

Eclipse Novels
A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court by Mark Twain (not a mystery, but a classic)
King Solomon's Mines by H. Rider Haggard (adventure)
The Secret Mountain by Enid Blyton (Children's Lit)
Nightfall by Isaac Asimov and Robert Silverberg (science fiction)
He Said/ She Said by Erin Kelly
Dark Nantucket Noon by Jane Langton
Gerald's Game; Dolores Claiborne by Stephen King
Solar Eclipse by John Farris
Eclipse; Shroud by John Banville (not mysteries)
The Strain by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan
Jade Dragon Mountain by Elsa Hart

221B Baker Street Key Pendant

Here's a cool pendant--a Sherlock 221B Baker Street Key. Love it! It's definitely the perfect fashion accessory for any Sherlockian.

It's at the Spookyisland shop on Etsy. $13.31

Comes with a chain in a variety of widths.

And, if the Sherlock 221B Baker Street Key pendant and necklace isn't your "cup of tea," Spookyisland also had a great Alice in Wonderland necklace, a Doctor Who sonic screwdriver, and a human brain (I like this one!)
