In 1883 CE the office of Pierre-Jules Hetzel received a number of curious letters inquiring about the appearance of a heretofore unmentioned character in Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea. The character, named Fitzgerald Wanderlust, first appeared on page 23 and recurred throughout the novel, often accompanying significant alterations to the plot. Still others wrote in claiming these changes had begun appearing in earlier editions of the work as well, without any seeming explanation for the modification. When the phenomenon was formally investigated some months later, no trace of these alleged changes could be found in any edition of the novel, and the event was written off as a (quite well-coordinated) hoax.
