I understand the intent of this, and good job of it, but your listing of the number of works for college attendee writers seems like it might be incomplete. I can't claim to know with absolute certainty about all of the writers listed, but I know Stephen King has published lots of short stories and some essays in magazines, and based on his library of novels published being somewhere around 70, it would seem like you didn't count those for him.

great authors who never went to college....great authors whom we have come to know

Very interesting article, and a few of these I was honestly surprised about. I would have thought given the quality of Bradbury's writings that he would be a college grad, but I was obviously wrong! For some of the older authors it isn't too surprising though. Nice graphic!

Funny that Dan and I clicked on the infographic :-) This is very cool. I am surprised over Agatha Christie. And that Ben Pfeiffer is the author of this!

Haha. Well someone has to author this thing so I accepted the responsibility. Yes, I agree Agatha Christie is surprised. I was also surprised Stieg Larsson never finished as well.

This proves that some had inherent talent!
