11 of the 20 titles on last week’s NYT Mass-Market Fiction Best Sellers list have death in the title. (via Dan Kennedy)
Writing about death is never dead.
and, i, for one, think seriously before buying a book if there isn’t death on its cover… unless of course it’s by one of Blake’s Towering Giants :)
Charlaine Bleedin’ Harris is clearly making money out of death, that’s for certain. Whoever she is.
these people need to “think outside the bun”
Well shit, guess I gotta think of a new title for my novel Death of the Dead Dead-Eaters Dying Death
Charlaine Harris is the author of the Sookie Stackhouse books. That is, she’s the one who created the characters in the HBO series True Blood. Her recent success is likely skewing the results.
It would be awesome if all eleven books were just different editions of “Death Comes for the Archbishop.” CATHER FEVER: CATCH IT!
