The answer to, and winner (if any) for, our last contest question of:
This struggling writer had gotten 5 books published that year, 1900. It was near Christmas and he needed some money for presents. He asked his publisher for an advance. They gave him a check on one of his book's earnings. He thanked them and went home without looking at the check. When he handed it to his wife he noticed it was for 1,423.98 which is about 40 or 50 thousand in today's money! The book that brought in this advance was the biggest seller of 1900 America. Name the book and the astounded author with the big check!
L. Frank Baum, and the book was "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz". Where did he get the name OZ? He was looking at a file cabinet that said O-Z!
