Wordsearch with a little twist.

There are 22 words hidden inside the grid (purposely), they are all:

1) Characters from fiction books

2) Countries in South America

3) Ex-Presidents of the US

enter image description here

Find as many words as possible for the word list. Words can be in any direction.

There will very likely have to be some sharing of answers, as it is very unlikely one person will know them all, so make sure to give credit if some of your words were discovered by others. This will probably be difficult but maybe it will work...

For formatting your answer, you could write where the clues are for example: Example(4,5,NE), where (4, 5) is the first letter coordinate and NE is the direction.

    $\begingroup$ All that aside - (11,16) W is "RAND". Close enough. :) $\endgroup$ – Rubio Jan 13 '17 at 20:53

  • $\begingroup$ @FrodCube I was waiting till we had them all to number them, to avoid renumbering. $\endgroup$ – GentlePurpleRain Jan 13 '17 at 21:02
  • $\begingroup$ It's so that new people know how many we have. Also we are only missing two words so it's not a lot of work. $\endgroup$ – FrodCube Jan 13 '17 at 21:04
  • $\begingroup$ @FrodCube Only one missing. The OP edited the question to say there are 22, not 23. $\endgroup$ – GentlePurpleRain Jan 13 '17 at 21:04
