Patterson: 17 books in 3 Years? No Sweat.

The New York TimesArts Beat” blog reports that James Patterson has just signed a deal with his publisher, Little, Brown, for 17 books through 2012.

“Arts Beat” figures that is a little shy of six books a year, but it’s not clear whether the deal includes paperback reprints, which would require fewer original works. In any case, Patterson can clearly handle the output; his total for the year 2009 is nine hardcovers, one original paperback, and one Manga title:
