Masonic references in the works of Avram Davidson
Joyleg (1962)
This is the story of 214 year old Isachar Z. Joyleg of Rabbit Notch, Tennessee, born 4 July 1748; a marine under John Paul Jones, a leader in the Whiskey Rebellion and — by implication — a founding member of Freemasonry in the short-lived State of Franklin. In explaining where he found his deed to some property, he says: "Twas hid beneath the charter of the Grand Lodge of Franklin Freemasons."

Masters of the Maze (1965)
Extended masonic references are made, including the journey of the main character, Joe Bellamy, to become a freemason. It is from the ranks of Freemasonry that a small and very select group of men are chosen to protect an interdimensional pathway. There is also discussion of the founding of the Grand Lodge of England and considerable reference to Elias Ashmole.
