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.

Prisoners of the Sun by Herge´(Tintin)
King Solomon's Mines by H. Rider Haggard (adventure)

Nightfall by Isaac Asimov and Robert Silverberg (science fiction)
