Tuesday Trivia

Richard Lederer, in Literary Trivia, wonders if you can play the literary numbers game?

These authors have all written "Number" books. One example is Dodie Smith (101) - OK, when you say "A Hundred and One...." out loud, what comes to mind? Dalmations!

How about these other books? Can you figure them out?

Ken Kesey (1)
Charles Dickens (2)
Alexandre Dumas (3)
A. A. Milne (6)
Agatha Christie (10 aka 0)
Jules Verne (80)
Arthur C. Clarke (2001)
Mark Twain (1,000,000)
