alright i'm working on an autistic worldbuilding project and i want some relatively obscure public domain works of literature that would be interesting to incorporate. as neat as they are i am tired of the majority of basic bitch public domain characters, Sherlock Holmes, Dracula, Frankenstein and his Monster. (even though i'm using the final two).
here are the ones i have so far that are obscure (at least to normalfags)
>Fishhead, Irvin S. Cobb
>The Land That Time Forgot, Arthur Conan-Doyle
>The Wendigo, Algernon Blackwood.
>Fearsome Creatures of the Lumberwood, William T. Cox.
>Gladiator, Philip Wylie
>Beyond Lies The Wug, Philip K. Dick
what are some other suggestions for obscure PD kinos to incorporate?

      This is not in the public domain. OP wants public domain characters to steal from.

    Do you mean The Land That Time Forgot by Edgar Rice-Boroughs, or The Lost World by Arthur Conan-Doyle?

        Why? They’re just dinosaurs. Can you please elaborate on your project.

          it's primarily centered around public domain LULZ capeshit and certain LULZ pulp fiction characters
          tldr: i'm writing the accounts of a WWII Era team of superheroes working on behalf of the U.S government and their exploits during and after the war. (and the pre-ww2 history of said superheroes, dating back to when Hugo Danner, the protagonist of Gladiator. was born)
          this includes reports (for lack of any better term) of their missions from 1943 to the early sixties. them being sent off to deal with whatever supernatural or weird bullshit ol' Uncle Sam doesn't feel like dealing with themselves.
          including, but not limited to
          >being sent to Castle Dracula to kill the count before he allies with Germany and tries to rape England (again)
          >preventing the Nazis from re-discovering whatever lost scientific principle Victor Frankenstein used to create the creature
          etc.
          i was planning to incorporate The Land That Time Forgot into one of these. but now that i think about it The Lost World would probably be more interesting to work with

            I would love to see prof. Challenger make an appearance. I think he’s rather an underrated character.

    What about HG Wells, he has some interesting characters/creatures. Also Zaroff from The Most Dangerous Game could be a good villain

      i'm fully aware of League, in fact. it's what inspired me to do this.
      but my iteration of the same concept is different enough to be unique, i think.
      mine is more focused on LULZ from the 1920s to the 60s with only a relatively small smattering of LULZ content.
