By fictional non-fiction I mean guide books that explain things about things that don't (or might not) exist. For example, J.K. Rowling wrote several, such as Quiddich Through the Ages and Magical Beasts and Where to Find Them. Then Star Trek has many books showing the technical specs of ships in great detail, and charting the galaxy with planets such as Vulcan, Kronos, and Andoria. Have you ever read books like these? Do you consider them fiction or non fiction?

That's a good name for them. I've read a couple of the Discworld ones, like The Science of the Discworld. They were fun, but not something I'd normally read.
It is tricky putting these in a category, isn't it?
No I dont have any interest in that genre.
I have several of this kind, uincluding encyclopaedias about mythical creatures, paranormal activity, and witchcraft. I also have Star Trek maps of the galaxy, and a book called 'The Science behind The X-Files'.
