The Pulp Fiction Dime Novel Is Making a Comeback

Panzer made a short trip into the Catosphere today. Our intrepid kitty explorer went to the Observer site.  He hasn't been there for a long time, so it took a while and a lot of digging to find a post for you.

According to the post by Parker Richards, mega-bestselling author James Patterson has a new project called BookShots. It's meant to be a resurrection of the old time Dime Novels. The books will be novella length, less than 150 pages, paper books. Since these will be physical books, they won't be in competition with Amazon's Kindle Singles which are similar but digital.

Whew! I am so glad Mom is better.
Panzer says, "Hmm ... If Mr. Patterson's business turns out to be successful, I wonder if Amazon will follow suit with shorter physical books?"

Note: This is a medium read today. You should only need a cup of tea and a muffin.
