Fiction Set in Maine

The books listed here are set completely or partially in real or imaginary places in the state of Maine. They're in alphabetical order by author, with links to author entries on the Maine Writers Index at the Maine State Library, if applicable (not all books set in Maine are written by Maine authors). To suggest a book for the list, please contact me.

Many thanks to Dennis Lien and Allen J. Hubin for help. Special thanks to Bill Bauer for access to his well-annotated finding list of books with Maine settings; this list would be much smaller without his help.
