Most published novels…

I was thinking about Stephen King today and it got me wondering who has published the most books ever. A quick search brought up this Yahoo! Answers page which has the all-time champion as Mary Faulkner with a stunning 904 novels in her 70-year life (that works out to something like 1.3 novels per month from the age of 15 to 70).

I was amazed. I was also surprised that the only person on the list that I even recognized was Alexandre Dumas (at 19 out of 20).

Pretty unbelievable. (I like the guy who wrote 200 books on just Buffalo Bill.)
