Why?

I realize that purely imaginative literature has a predominant presence on this board. But were you considering, when you became certain of the one-person hypothesis, that non-fiction is arguably more popular than fiction?

As far as translators are concerned, your one person hypothesis may be partly due to the provincialism of English speakers. We tend to read books originally written in our own language. Look at how the number one through seven German fiction bestsellers on my last link were all translations.

Editors are garbage? Now people are going to think you're a Stalinist again.
