    • 2006, Peter J. Leithart, 1 & 2 Kings (page 73)
      Humans are created in the image of a God who creates, and humans are therefore created to be subcreators.
    • 2013, Mark J. P. Wolf, Building Imaginary Worlds: The Theory and History of Subcreation
      Some subcreators appear as characters within the worlds they create; for example, in Henry Darger's book The Story of the Vivian Girls, Darger appears as a character and his book appears as well and is read by other characters in his world.
