Millionaire? Hmm. At 26p a copy, I think not.

I get 26p, but you pay 86p (or 99c in USA). It's on Amazon.

Why not keep some mystery alive? There are numerous authors who were virtually unknown or little-published in their lifetimes, yet posthumously became world-famous (Kafka, Jane Austen and Stieg Larsson to name but three). Me, I'd go for Henry Darger, who died in 1973, his pen and pencil drawings, watercolors, collages, and manuscripts having been discovered by his landlords. His is best known for the 15,145-page "The Story of the Vivian Girls, in what is Known as the Realms of the Unreal, of the Glandeco-Angelinnian War Storm, Caused by the Child Slave Rebellion." My 15,146-page "The Story of the Pally Girls, in what is Know as the Realms of the Unbelievable in the Pseudo-Chinese Embassy, of the Sino-Caucasian Mingling, Caused by the Excess of Nickers over Knickers" is a work in progress.

Maybe you should start preparing "One Year in Wonderland part Deux—A tale of the Inedible in Abu Dhabi".

Or you could try to rival Sylvia Plath's posthumous Pulitzer Prize for Poetry for "I Hate Alliteration".
