Alright, let’s get this question out of the way before it becomes another tech-quiz cliche :p. Who is the author?

Cracked by: Pawankumar Hegde , apar , Kaustubh , Bharath , shrey , Mikey , jowens , Anjul , Dibyo , dineshk , Rogi , Ananth , lanu , Piyush , shrik , Thejas V R , Logik , aditthya , duriel , krudebox , Vinay Nair Karath , Moju21 , SS and udupendra

Answer:
Image is the cover of “With a little help”, Cory Doctorow’s self-published short story collection. The image on the cover is, of course, one of the recurring characters on XKCD – a stick figure that represents Cory.

    Cory Doctorow’s With A Little Help.

    If you look carefully, the answer is visible on the spine. Should’ve done a better job of obscuring it!

    Excellent xkcd referencing title clue.
    ( Also, I didn’t see Doctorow’s name on the side when I zoomed the image :) ).

    “With a Little Help: my DIY short story ” – Cory Doctorow.
