This is just kind of scary

Publisher’s Lunch says that Nielsen Bookscan figures show that James Patterson has a 2.5 percent share of the ENTIRE MARKET FOR FICTION in the UK.

There’s just something scary about that.

PL also says “Random House UK unveiled their plans for taking over the James Patterson publishing program from Headline next February. They'll double Patterson's annual releases to eight titles a year, adding his new teen fiction series (Jack X) and rebranding the Maximum Ride series for crossover sales, non-fiction, more romance and a graphic novel.” [Full disclosure: most of those books have a credited coauthor.]
