A saturated market, or

What's that smell?

It's hardly an original lament, but bandwagons move so fast now that even as one sees it coming across the denuded landscape, books getting ready to jump are already committing themselves to being left in the dust.
When this came out in the spring it had a bit of new car smell to it, and good on Quirk books they have a hit. Their site is lively and they clearly know how to move their line, but I'm hoping against hope that every publisher marrying long dead icons with undead ghouls is an aberration and not an unfortunate symptom of mash up culture.

I know I'm old and it's not enough to just be good all the time, but Jesus, enough already!
