Lista de livros de autores de ficção mais vendidos

artigo de lista da Wikimedia

Esta página fornece uma lista de autores de ficção mais vendidos até o presente, em qualquer idioma. Embora um número preciso para qualquer autor seja quase impossível de ser calculado, a lista é baseada em números aproximados fornecidos ou repetidos por fontes confiáveis. "Best-selling" refere-se à estimativa do número de cópias vendidas de todos os livros de ficção escritas ou co-escritas por um autor. Para manter o comprimento da lista gerenciável, apenas os autores com estimativas de vendas acima de 100 milhões de livros estão incluídos. Autores de histórias em quadrinhos não estão incluídos, a menos que tenham livros reais como o mangá Tankobon.

Para alguns autores, como Miguel de Cervantes, Alexandre Dumas, Charles Dickens, Jane Austen, Arthur Conan Doyle, Victor Hugo, Júlio Verne, Rick Riordan, Jack Higgins e Leon Uris, um número exato não pode ser encontrado, embora haja indicações de que eles também têm mais de 100 milhões de cópias de seu trabalho de impressos. Eles não foram incluídos na tabela.
