How do some hub authors gather hundreds of followers in a matter of months?
By writing quality hubs and helping/participating in the forums and Q&A section.
Having very informative and useful hubs is a great start, but I think you actually have to participate in the community. I love the q&a section. I also "hub hop" and discover more hubbers and leave meaningful comments on hubs that I find interesting. All of these things have brought me followers.
Get around, be noticed. Answer questions, leave comments - but the main thing for me was forum posting and writing generally fun stuff. I try to remember that every post, comment, message is an advert for me. I don't mean writing "follow me crap" - I mean ensuring that you always post within your 'persona' - don't waste time ranting about boring stuff that no one is interested in.
Of course now I have enough followers, I just type any old thing.
Thank you all for your words. I am fairly new to HubPages and enjoy reading all of your wonderful hubs.

As your followers increase to hundreds, how do you decide which ones work to read and comment upon?Out of the hundreds that follow you since it is well nigh impossible to read each one's work.
