Extra Extra read all about it - The Black Horse rides again
This issue features a campfire chat with Nik Morton, Matt P. Mayo and myself with the subject being, what we like to read and indeed what we don't like to read.
"You know, I despair of the book industry at the moment. I recently tried to read a James Patterson book and I found it poorly written and predictable with no characterization – and this guy is one of the best selling names in the world. He doesn’t even write his own books these days. He has turned his name into a brand like Coca-Cola – and yet readers snap him up. This wouldn’t have happened years ago – have we dumbed down this much? There is so much great writing out there but there seems to be a lack of taste with the average reader." Gary Dobbs, Black Horse Extra Dec-Feb 2011 issue.
There's also the exhaustive Hoofprints section and much much more.
