I would be mildly surprised if there haven't been 60+ million copies sold worldwide of Poe collections, Holmes collections, several of Twain's and Hugo's novels...and so on...perhaps the Doyle and Poe don't count as varying selections...

That must be the reason. If there were only one single Holmes collection, it would be there.

Where are Mickey Spillane and PEYTON PLACE?

Bill Crider said...

Maybe in the next ten.

Never expect sound research, I fear, from MENTAL FLOSS (ugly image, that title...or maybe I just have grown too fond of my brain plaque).
