    Nooooooo! Better to discuss his books... that alone could take a whole year. Of course, we could try to determine "what genre" each book belongs to. I bet we would have to invent new genres. I suppose the awful "thriller" serves for a lot of them. But, thinking out loud, if a book doesn't thrill you in some way, it can't be much good, can it?
