"Luft's List, compiled by a librarian with an eye for the
weird and wonderful, greatly expands the 'Remarkable
Names of Real Authors' section of our Bizarre Books,
setting a new benchmark - which, no doubt, will
challenge other librarians with time on their hands to
jump even higher (or perhaps that should be lower)."

of Classic Oddities (Harper Perennial, 2007)
