Book logic

Anyone want to explain to me why Borders has Stephen King's On Writing in the horror section? Probably the same reason they've got Robert Whitaker's Anatomy of an Epidemic (a hard-hitting and painstakingly researched non-fiction book on the mental health care industry) in self-help.

Some moron someplace saw the name Steven King and assumed it was his normal genera. Isn't it obvious? If it's written by King is must be horror.

I always think it important to put a copy of The Cake Bible in with the King James and NIV's.
