These are shows about real authors who wrote fiction, but the stories themselves may be completely fictional. I have noted which are is in each. In many of them the stores give a fictional or fantastical inspiration for the author's works. The rest are bio-pics and slightly more true to life (and so noted).

Please let me know if there are any others I should watch and add to this list.

a list of 34 titles
At some point in each of these shows you or a character may wonder what is real, and what is imagined, dreamed, or just made-up or exaggerated stories - or dreams just make up a large portion of the story (or do they?).

In some cases, they are resolved or revealed by the end of the show, but in others they aren't. Some times it is the characters who are not sure what is real, and in others the audience doesn't know.

I am looking for more to watch and add to this list. Any recommendations?

Steampunk is a pretty loose term that covers a wide range of books, TV programs, movies, etc. For the purpose of this ongoing list I have included movies and TV shows that:

1) take place in either a Victorian/Edwardian Era (or one similar to these)
2) utilize technology available in that period (usually powered by steam or clockwork) in a way to mimic modern-type devices

The story may include supernatural elements, as long as it also has 1 and 2.

I am always looking for other shows to watch, so let me know if you have any suggestions.

Shows showing what happens behind the video games.
 
a list of 11 titles
Some shows stay on the air well past their prime and others could probably keep on going but choose to end while they are still on top.

A few never get a chance to complete the first season or are cancelled just as they are hitting their stride. These are some of those kind.

What others would you add to this list?

Movies and TV shows or episodes that include World War I.
