Dan Brown’s follow up to The DaVinci Code, now titled The Lost Symbol (wasn’t it supposed to be “The Solomon Key” or something?), will be released in September. Reports on its first print run range from Holy Fuck to Holy Fucktard. And speaking of fucktards, the big boxes are already trying to squeeze the little guys out by slashing prices by 50%. OMG-OMG-OMG! SALES! (runs in place while nervously shaking hands at sternum level) GRAB!! GRAB!! GRAB!! Thankfully, there are only a few authors who can make the entire industry start to pant and panic as though a suitcase full of money has popped open on the cultural interstate. Ah, Dignity… when is your holiday over, again?
