    Lee Child Takes On Joe Konrath

    Oh, this is interesting. Two heavyweights go at it over the Amazon/Hachette dispute.

    Lee child comes back in the comments on the above blog today and sets some more points down. I'm a Lee Child's fan. I've read a lot of Jack Reacher novels. But I can't say I'm really impressed with his "My dick is bigger than your dick" and chest thumping attitude. (So what if he has sold a gazillion more copies than Konrath...what does that have to do with the Amazon/Hachette dispute? Nor does it make any of his points any more valid.) He also never replies, or debates the main points. His viewpoint is anecdotal, his experience and that's all that matters. And since he's rich and successful, well, you have to believe him, seems to be his main point. Other viewpoints need not apply. I do give him kudos for having the cajones to come on Konrath's (Konrant?) blog and go toe to toe with him. Konrath was being unusually nice, for Konrath.

    This whole Amazon/Hachette drama, while completely useless and a waste of time, sure is entertaining.
