Author Usurpation

A work so iconic, it defines the creator. And makes people forget that He Also Did (other works, which you wouldn't believe if you didn't know).

In most cases, authors that create a great work and several lesser-known works can still be associated with all of them. However, if the work is popular enough, it overshadows all other aspects of their career. In extreme cases, the work becomes synonymous with the author's name.

For the actor version, see I Am Not Spock. Compare Magnum Opus Dissonance and Tough Act to Follow. Contrast One-Book Author for when the person has only made a single work.
