So, that's just LeGuin surviving from mhw's list (although I believe he owns Brookmyre as do I, since he recommended him to me).

I don't think I own books by ten different authors; not that I could remember offhand, anyway. I don't tend to own books, just borrow them.

The only author mentioned so far I've even got one book of is Clarke. Aside from that, I'd have to make an entirely new list. And my books are mostly non-fiction historical, by a multitude of authors.. if you want any kind of series, you have to go to Joe's military books. Or his Heinlein ones.

I don't meme well, I guess :)
