"Gloom, despair and agony on me,
deep dark depression, excessive misery . . ."

Or do you not remember that song from Hee-Haw?

I am appalled. And so should HarperCollins be.


Aside from the artistic and ethical yucks, what I don't like about it is the view it entails of books as an ephemeral, disposable good. (I mean, read a 10- or 20-year old book with product placement and cringe at the dated references. Read a 50-year-old book and draw a blank.)
