This list was generated using WorldCat Fiction Finder on 21 October 2014. The list order is based on the number of OCLC member libraries that hold a given title. Fiction Finder is an all fiction subset of OCLC WorldCat.


WorldCat is the world's largest and most comprehensive catalog of library resources from around the world, with more than 314 million bibliographic records that represent more than 2 billion items held by participating libraries, including books, movies, music, e-books, licensed databases, online periodicals, digital collections and more. Because of its scale, WorldCat can be used to represent a large part of the scholarly and cultural record.
