Literary forgery (also literary mystification, literary fraud or literary hoax) refers to writing, such as a manuscript or a literary work, either deliberately misattributed to a historical or invented author, or a purported memoir presented as genuine.

Given its dating and nature the Voynich Manuscript is not a literary forgery in the conventional sense, though it may be a literary hoax (though this would depend upon the intent behind its creation, and, possibly, the perceptions of its subsequent owners).
