The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

The GOOD

How amazing to read that the bestselling Stieg Larsson Millennium Trilogy now accounts for more than 60 per cent of Quercus’ total book sales. More than 60 per cent! That is an astonishing achievement for my old boss, Christopher MacLehose.

The BAD

Very sorry to see that the University of California Press has decided to suspend the publication of its poetry book series New California Poetry. The Culture Crunch continues, and poetry is suffering. Why not buy something from the series? 

The UGLY

It seems the young David Cameron had a friend at Buckingham Palace, who helped him on his way to the top. Now it looks as if Anonymous at the Palace has decided to put the boot in. And they tell us the monarchy is above politics. Or at least, they want us to think it is.
