Revisionist Novels

The retelling of popular novels or historical events. Most of the ones I started with have had changes made for comedic effect or overall entertainment value, but I think even a retelling of a story from an alternative point of view can also fall into this category. Books set before or after a popular novel but do not alter the content of the original material do not apply.
