While reading a Stephen King essay in the New York Times (part 1)

Can a  Novelist Be Too Productive?  (The New York Times, 8/27/2015)
Certainly no one is going to induct the mystery novelist John Creasey, author of 564 novels under 21 different pseudonyms, into the Literary Hall of Heroes; both he and his creations (the Toff, Inspector Roger West, Sexton Blake, etc.) have largely been forgotten.

Most of the LINKcat bibliographic records have a single volume attached to them. 

I checked the first dozen records in LINKcat and none of Creasey's books are checked out.  I recall his taking up a lot of shelf space in the Oshkosh Public Library's mystery fiction section when I first started working there.
