U.K. publishers reduce number of titles produced, still publish crap

From Mark Sanderson’s Literary Life column:

[U.K.] Publishers may have declared that they will be producing fewer titles in 2004 yet books we could all do without keep on coming.

Here are just a few not to look forward to in the next six months: The Olympic Cookbook by Ainsley Harriott (BBC) contains recipes by competing British athletes; Be Your Own Psychic by Sherron Mayes (Hodder); Baby’s First Tattoo by Jim Mullen (Bloomsbury); Carry-ons: Travelling Chihuahuas by Sharon Montrose (Stewart Tabori & Chang) features photographs of the micro-mutts in glamorous locations and UK On A G-string: Adventures Of The World’s First Door-To-Door Busker by Justin Brown (Summersdale).
