The strange conjunctions so characteristic of alphabetical order:  Larry Niven next to Mary Norton, Isaac Asimov with Jane Austen, Tove Jansson alongside Samuel Johnson, while George Herbert and Georgette Heyer are alphabetically congruent whichever name you sort them on.

What a pity that my non-fiction is thematically aggregated.
