This paper discusses issues in the representation of fictional entities and the representation of propositions from fiction, using SNePS. It briefly surveys four philosophical ontological theories of fiction and sketches an epistemological theory of fiction (to be implemented in SNePS) using a story operator and rules for allowing propositions to “migrate” into and out of story “spaces”.
