This list of smuggling in fiction includes works of fiction (in both prose and poetry) where smuggling is a prominent theme. Smuggling is a common trope or theme in literature and can be found in a wide range of works – from the 18th century novels of Charlotte Turner Smith to Prosper Mérimée's 19th century novella, Carmen (the inspiration for numerous films as well as Bizet's opera, Carmen)[1] to the James Bond novel (and later film) Diamonds are Forever.
