Miles, Lawrence (ed.) -- The Book of the War
A lexicon novel from a spinoff Doctor Who storyline. (It does not
directly involve any canonical Who characters, and the terminology is
painted over.) The history-spanning, insular, weakly godlike
civilization has run into an unnamed Enemy. This is a dictionary of
factions, technologies, personages, and adjunct factors from the War's
early years (for certain agreed-upon values of "year"). Lexicon
entries are threaded together in several ways to form several implied
narratives -- of which some are interesting and some are dull.
Nonetheless the book is a worthwhile example of a bunch of crazy
people writing something impossible.
