Strange how there's so many negative opinions all over the internet. I thought KJA told me it was just a few bad apples? :)

i know eh! on Frank's books he emphasized himself as author as much or even more than the title of the book. these guys know they have no selling power in and of themselves so they have to capitalize on the brand they're highjacking.

The lettering for the author is commonly much larger than the title. It's pretty much standard in fiction books. But you're right, the publishers are relying on the recognition of the famous series, rather than the reputation of those who wrote it.

Hey, why aren't we disturbing the shit more on that facebook page? I'll get on it...
