I wrote an advice column at my junior college paper, only I did it from the perspective of an Orca whale (the school's mascot).

I treasure my late grandmother's Oliveri Lettera 22, although it works only occasionally these days.

Spider Jerusalem, from Warren Ellis and Darick Robertson's "Transmetropolitan."
