  1. Authors

    Authors or, The Game of Authors is a card game for three to five players. The first Game of Authors was published by G. M. Whipple & A. A. Smith of Salem, Massachusetts in 1861, and later published by Parker Brothers in 1897. The deck of cards consists of eleven sets of four cards each representing the works of eleven famous authors. The object of the game is to form complete sets of the four cards comprising the works of a particular author. The winner is the player with the most sets. The game is the creation of Anne Abbott, a Beverly, Massachusetts clergyman's daughter and editor of a young people's literary journal. Abbott also designed the hugely popular mid-19th century card game, Dr. Busby. Later decks included additional authors, but the authors represented in the original deck were: ⁕Louisa May Alcott ⁕James Fenimore Cooper ⁕Charles Dickens ⁕Nathaniel Hawthorne ⁕Washington Irving ⁕Henry Wadsworth Longfellow ⁕Sir Walter Scott ⁕William Shakespeare ⁕Robert Louis Stevenson ⁕Alfred, Lord Tennyson ⁕Mark Twain

Examples of authors in a Sentence

  1. Johann von Goethe:

    The most original authors are not so because they advance what is new, but because they put what they have to say as if it had never been said before.

  2. Proverb:

    All authors should prepare to encounter criticism.

  3. Anthony Bourdain:

    From my privileged vantage point, I've encountered a lot of extraordinary people with exciting things to say. This is a chance to get those voices heard. We look forward to publishing an unusual mix of new authors, existing works, neglected or under-appreciated masterworks, and translations of people from elsewhere who we think are just too damned brilliant not to be available in English.

  4. J. K. Rowling:

    Jane Austen is the pinnacle to which all other authors aspire.

  5. James Scott:

    Cybersecurity whitepaper authors have it all wrong! It’s about weaponizing the mind of the reader so that when they’re done reading the document, you’ve memetically drilled home actionable concepts that will expediently impact their cyber defense.
