Wow. Fascinating. Repulsive. Inspiring? But he's right. If that many people like his stuff -- and they're READING -- what's the problem? Sure, it's a sad comment on mass taste, but what else is new? Who's he hurting? Still, it confirms in my mind that he doesn't need a place in my monthly newspaper review column. Better to find and opine about newer writers who are advancing the genre.

Aha! Thanks all. This is beginning to make some sense to me now. Apparently, both reviewer and editor have in-put on choices, except for some really important release -- which gets reviewed as a public service. :) Add this to the sheer mass of material, and it's easy to see that many books have to be passed over.
That's a whole lot better than the evil thoughts I've been having on the subject.
