- “Collection of books found around the Wasteland. No one reads, but they make good cook fires.”
This is a list of items which are considered Books:
- Ironically, despite the description saying that no one reads, several wastelanders can be seen reading in different towns.
- The book titles may be references to real world titles, e.g. "Comets for Idiots" may be a reference to the famous "For Dummies" series, etc.
- "To Serve Mutant" is a reference to "To Serve Man", the title of an episode of The Twilight Zone, the latter of which id had referenced in the past once more already, in Commander Keen 6.
- "Devar's Travels" might be a reference to Jonathan Swift's "Gulliver's Travels" (though GT was four volumes, not six).
- "A Tale of Two Bandits" might be a reference to Charles Dickens's "A tale of two cities".
- The "Apophis Survival Guide" may be a reference to the "Wasteland Survival Guide" from Fallout 3, another Bethesda game.
