I don't know much about what canons are extant in the Age of Sail period; can someone else supply information there?

Texts that have been established as extant, canonically or millicanonically, in the DiRverse:

Shakespeare – all works
Dickens – all works
Geoffrey of Monmouth – all works
Chrétien de Troyes – all works
Sir Thomas Malory, Morte D’Arthur
The Mabinogion and associated texts
All poetry traditionally ascribed to Taliesin (written by Gwion!)
All classical literature and philosophy
All Christmas carols known in our universe

Robert Graves – all works (including, most importantly, The White Goddess)
Wordsworth – all works
A E Housman – all works
Yeats – all works
Dylan Thomas – all works
R S Thomas – all works (although in 1978, Thomas was still writing)
Charles Williams – Taliessin through Logres; The Voyage of the Summer Stars

Monty Python – all works produced by 1978

Texts that cannot exist in DiRverse:

Dorothy Sayers, the Peter Wimsey novels
Lois McMaster Bujold, the Vorkosigan books

Texts that may or may not exist in DiRverse – but if they do, Bran hasn’t seen them:

L M Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables and series
Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden
Gaston Leroux, The Phantom of the Opera
Robert Jordan, Wheel of Time
Ellis Peters, the Cadfael Chronicles

Texts I don’t believe exist in the DiRverse, but I’m not sure:

C S Lewis, The Chronicles of Narnia

None of the Dark is Rising characters have ever been canon-punctured. That is, they don’t know they are described in an accurate twentieth-century narrative in another universe. Folklore about Old Ones exists in the DiRverse and is known to John Rowlands, among others. Arthur, Guinevere and Merlin, of course, appear in all the stories, even though Merriman Lyon will be the first to tell you how inaccurate the stories are.
