Fiction was a 1990s goth rock band fronted by singer-keyboardist Susan Peters. Their seven-track CD called One Million Hundred Tries was released at the beginning of 1991 on their own Annex label, which cost them over $4000 to record and press. Lyrically, the band tended to favor storytelling, including an epic prog-heavy track called "Monk By The Sea," inspired by the same-named painting by German artist Caspar David Friedrich.
