This might properly be put in Humor. But I thought it at least mildly interesting to find that John Galt is one of the authors who appeared in Harold Bloom's "Western Canon" (specifically for a novel entitled The Entail).

So who was John Galt?


(BTW, if you type in John Galt into Wiki's search function, it takes you directly to the page for the character in Atlas Shrugged, and only then to this John Galt via a disambiguation link.)

Bloom's list can be found starting here


(Click through for a total of four pages).

And no, Ayn Rand does no appear in the list.
