This take on the data had a startling surprise. The author with the most stories, Robert Reed, had no stories on the final list. This was true of many authors. Using an arbitrary cutoff seems unfair at times, but lowering the cutoff to 4, which would have put Reed on the final list, would have made the total list 443 stories long. We’re already worried that few visitors to the site will even scroll through the 275 titles.
