Has anyone read 'Inversions' by Iain M Banks? Male sneezing is not my thing, but some may be interested that there are several scenes where a major character sneezes violently, including one (if my memory serves me correctly) where the king's physician tries to catch her master's sneeze in a hankerchief for him!! Worth reading, fans of male sneezing.

PS. lots of other Iain (M) Banks' books contain sneezing. They are all pretty cool and well written. Enjoy! :rolleyes:

Well, that's me off to the bookshop after work tomorrow... :bleh:

In one of the "Star Trek Next Generation" novels, "Boogeymen" by Mel Gilden, Data pretends to have a cold, and he sneezes once into a tissue. There's also an adorable bit of stuffy talk!

There is one in the inmortal novel "Crime and Punishment" by Fyodor M. Dostoevsky. A girl wants to kill herself, so she jumps into the river. Shortly after she is rescued and sneezes from the cold.

That book has everything, I love it!

The Dinotopia series (youth fiction about people living in some mysterious land alongside dinosaurs) had a book in which the girl was having allergy attacks all throughout. Can't remember the name though. But the series was somewhat popular, does anyone know it?

"Trick or Treat", "Overdue" and "Walk of the Spirits" by Richie Tankersley Cusick contain (male) sneezing. I love her books, they are great! And her characters are awesome, too!

Also, Julian Kestrel sneezes in "The Devil in Music" by Kate Ross. The Julian Kestrel books are all awesome! I had so much fun reading them and hoped for Julian to sneeze. When he finally did, I almost fainted!  :P

Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrel by Susanna Clarke has both Jonathan Strange and a butler named Stephen sneeze, Jonathan from a cold, and Stephen from...soot? Dust? I'm not sure which, but I remember it was pretty nice. <3

This book is nothing short of amazing, with or without fine British gentlemen sneezing. In other words: I recommend it!

Also there are sneezes in Stephen King's "A Doctor's Case" in the Nightmares and Dreamscapes collection... Sherlock Holmes is allergic to cats in it.
Oh man, I have JUST read this  :drool: and I had to come straight here to see if it's mentioned anywhere.  Cat allergies have to be my number 1 choice, and this story has it all.

OMG this deserves it's own thread, I'd swear Stephen King wrote this story just for us!  A cute little teaser in the beginning mentions Sherlock sneezing "often and profoundly" and then Sherlock sneezes nine -count it out now, NINE- times throughout, often in fits.  At one point, the kitty jumps straight onto Sherlock's lap.

This story has completely ruined me, I cannot read any more Sherlock Holmes without my imagination going crazy!   :omg:    

And I thought my brain had already gone in overdrive with the case of "The Dying Detective".  Now excuse me as I go back to re-read Stephen King's version.  :shy:

I'd say there are quite a few books with sneezing in them, and that characters in books are more likely to sneeze than in movies. When was the last time you watched a serious movie where a character sneezed? It doesn't happen often, but in books its a bit more likely. A lot of the time they're not people you'd want to see sneeze, but they're sneezes nonetheless. :unsure:

The Rachel Morgan books by Kim Harrison have sneezing here and there; I've only read up to book 4, but my understanding is later on Rachel's sneezing will be used as some kind of warning device or demons or something, I'm not really sure, but it definitely sounds like an interesting plot development :blushing: . A lot of the sneezing in books 1 and 4 are when she's in some sort of animal form, so it didn't really do anything for me, but in the beginning of book 4 she sneezes in human form from plaster dust inside an old building and I think she either sneezes or almost sneezes in human form at some point in book 1, where it mentions she puts down Jenks (her pixie partner) before she sneezes and drops him.

Chuck Palahniuk sometimes has sneezing in his books, but it's usually played for grossness so I really doubt he has the fetish :boom::
-In Fight Club, the protagonist mentions that he sneezes on people's food while working as a waiter and later gets sued for it.
-Two instances in Choke; in one, Victor Mancini's friend sneezes and blows snot rockets, and in another his mom sneezes blood, I think due to drug use.
-Haunted, which is a short story anthology, has a framing device in which one of the characters is named Miss Sneezy, but she only sneezes once in the whole novel; what a rip-off. :D
-Pygmy has a scene later on where the title-character, who is an exchange student from some terrorist country and wants to bring down the United States, tries to wake his "foster sister" up by making her sneeze, and it even spells out her sneeze. The book is written in broken English and I found it barely readable  and couldn't make it past page 50 so I don't know what the context of that was. Susiequsie told me about it, though.

Stephen King books can be a good source for sneezes; they're more likely to show up in his longer works. I was actually surprised as well when Under the Dome had no sneezes in it, since his other two over-one-thousand-page books had a lot of sneezes in them.  I personally don't think he has the fetish; I just think he has a thing for bodily functions in general. If it's a bodily function, it's probably appeared in several of his books. A lot of characters also fart and pee and poop in their pants, too. He also seems to feel the need to mention AIDS at least once in almost every one of the books he's written since 1986.

Dean Koontz has a thing for making dogs sneeze; anytime a dog shows it, up it will sneeze, it seems. I haven't read that many books, but most of the dogs I've seen sneeze at least once. I'm not sure why. I would've rather seen one of his female main characters sneeze, but unfortunately only dogs sneeze in the world of Dean Koontz. :)

The protagonist of Native Sun, Bigger Thomas sneezes once after jumping out the window and landing in the snow. He's not a very likeable character but if you like male sneezing maybe you'll like it.

In Clive Barker's Damnation Game, it's mentioned in a flashback that there was a lot of soot, so when someone sneezed, they sneezed out black stuff. A couple of his books have mentioned colds here and there, but otherwise sneezing doesn't appear in any of the Clive Barker books I've read.

There are a couple of sneezes in A Storm of Swords, which is the third book in A Song of Ice and Fire. First one is some guy doing something with spices (I don't really remember) and he sneezes. Fans of male might like that. The other is a (probably) ten-year-old girl sneezing so probably not much interest there.

This last book is extremely rare and obscure and I can't even find any information about it whatsoever on the Internet, but it's called Death Day. The copy I have is old and beat up and has a hole in it from when my brother shoved a screwdriver all the way through; I think we bought it from the Library a long time ago. It's about zombies coming back to life and lead by some master zombie with a cursed medallion. In the beginning, some guy sneezes from the flu.

So yeah, plenty of sneezes in books, but female seems quite rare. :) :boom:

But I must say that the fan-fiction short story he wrote about Sherlock Holmes, that was centered around sneezing, well... that one seemed to be written for us. :lol:

And not just his longer works have sneezing in them, there are several sneezes mentioned in short story collections, and in for example "The long walk", "Salem's lot", "The running man"... um, I know plenty of others, but I can't recall at the top of my head now. But yes, sadly not many females. However, Bobbi in "Tommyknockers" sneezes several times. ;) I would have loved for the female cop Ruth to sneeze as well... rawr! :lol:

There are mentions about allergies (and sneezing too, I think) in "The Plant", unfinished e-book by King and IMHO one of his best works ever!

I haven't either, I mean, I've only checked a little because male sneezing isn't my no1, and nor is audio books, but I remember thinking "hm, that one could be interesting to listen to..." but nope, haven't found it anywhere.

Seriously. I wonder what King would do if he did find us out. Or perhaps that Holmes fiction was his way of graciously giving us a little something after actually finding us? There are two celebs I think would treat this fetish in a fairly nice way, if they came across this site, and that would be Mr Stephen King, and... I think Lady Gaga. ;)
