The Booker shortlist has just been announced here. I see my favourite was overlooked. Again.

Here are the odds if you fancy a punt:

Hilary Mantel – Wolf Hall 10/11
Sarah Waters – The Little Stranger 5/1
J M Coetzee – Summertime 6/1
A S Byatt – The Children’s Book 8/1
Adam Foulds – The Quickening Maze 10/1

There’s a bit of value in JM scooping his hat-trick, but the smart money all went on Mantel when her odds were generous.

Looking forward to reading them but not betting on them!

Meanwhile, can I steal a moment to tell you that the link to my blog on your blog-roll is out of date? I moved the address to www.helpineedapublisher.blogspot.com

Hope to see you there again!
