Citations for fabular
The lanes were meant for everlasting hope, and since I've got such respect for the made-up, the invented, the seriously confected, why not celebrate God as totem of the great fabular instinct? Why not indeed. Andrew O'Hagan, The Life and Opinions of Maf the Dog, and of His Friend Marilyn Monroe, 2010
The result is a much more streamlined fiction than any of the other mature work, more closely resembling the fabular Christmas books, which Dickens had recently read aloud to a working-class audience in Birmingham. Suzanne Keen, Victorian Renovations of the Novel, 1998
