Me: So, I know you're writing, but are you reading anything interesting now?

Famous Writer: Funny you should mention that. Someone came up to me in a signing line the other day and said "X is my favorite book of yours." and I said, "That's nice, but I don't have a book called X. And she said "Yes you do, it's my favorite book, I've read it 40 times." And after the signing was over I got my Kindle out and went to Amazon, just out of curiosity, and sure enough, there was a book by me called X that I have absolutely no memory of writing, so I bought it and I've been reading that for the past few days and it's actually quite good."

I don't remember ever seeing a book called "X." I'll look for it, though!

I am guessing it was Robert Silverberg who had a prolific output in the 1950's and who is most likely to have written a book and forgotten about it.
