I do not agree that "The House of the Seven Gables", as a puzzlein the Word Puzzle of 12/20/05 is truly a Fictional Dwelling. As a resident of Salem, MA, I can attest that there truly IS a House of the Seven Gables, located on Derby Street in Salem. I used extra letters and lost points as I did not beleive that would be the answer. Oh, Well..........

I apologize for your loss in points. I did not realize that there was a real "House of the Seven Gables". I knew that the story was fictional so I assumed the setting was as well. Had I known, I would not have included that in the puzzle.

It's an abode in a work of fiction; I don't think it was tricky at all.

Maybe not tricky, but still possibly confusing based on the title of the word puzzle. The title implies that the houses are not real.
