    I found this site when I was browsing, and it was interesting enough that I thought some of you might enjoy it. I did, and I've never heard of many of these. There are a lot of famous literary hoaxes on there.

    Biggest literary hoax I know is Hitler's Diaries. Just putting it there before I go and have a look...It's not there, WTF??

    OTOH that site has loads of fun hoaxes to go and read and not just the literary ones. Nice find there.

    It is funny that two of those hoaxes are opposites but ended up with the same result. The Diary of a Good Neighbour and
    The Steps Experiement both tried to show how hard it is for an unknown author to break in by doing exactly the opposite thing and and I guess they both succeeded.

    The one's that always annoy me are the autobiographical, my life was terrible, pity me books that there was a fad for a few years ago.
