Your editor is a big Carl Sanderson fan,” he said. “She’s dying to meet him. ” That is, if my editor thinks that Carl Sanderson is a 1960s cowboy star made good, for whom books are being ghosted, and Carl Sanderson is a guy with clout, who can call up the aforesaid editor and demand that the whole direction of a storyline be scrapped because he has a better idea, and all the editor can do is meekly pass the instructions on to me—well, then, who precisely is in charge here? “All you have to do,” Henry explained, “is put on the mask and your editor will never know the difference.

He got me my first novelization job, Captain CutThroat, the book version of a pirate movie which had lasted in the theaters almost a whole day; a book which sold dozens of copies.
