Though E.L. James has received recent headlines for the phenomenal sales of "Fifty Shades of Grey," stalwart James Patterson remains the highest-earning author, according to Forbes. The magazine estimates that Patterson made $94 million last year, with nearly all of that revenue coming from book sales and relatively little from TV and film royalties. Patterson published 14 new titles in 2011, Forbes said. Patterson manintains his prodigious output because he works as a writer/editor, often teaming with others who bang out thrillers under his direction.

Two pedestrians were killed by vehicles in separate accidents over the weekend in Baltimore County, one by a bus and the other by a hit-and-run driver who is being sought by police. In the first accident, the victim was Cindy Feldstein, who worked as spokeswoman and assistant to the chief medical examiner in Baltimore. She died Saturday afternoon when she crossed Park Heights Avenue and was struck by a Maryland Transit Administration bus. A few hours later, Jason M. Cheslik, 29, was killed by a van on Hazelwood Avenue, about a mile from his home in Overlea.

The staggering commercial success of top commodity fiction intrigues me. Why do millions of readers devour the works of a small number of writers of very thin literary merit or emotional conviction? Those I have read have obvious qualities: energy, invitation to escape, nourishment of harmless fantasies and plots that seize readers' attention from the opening page. But so do hundreds of other mass-market aspiring writers. Why these? Now comes my most recent foray into that mysterious territory: Four Blind Mice by James Patterson (Little, Brown, 400 pages, $27.95)

Maximum Ride: The Angel Experiment by James Patterson. Little Brown. $16.99. Ages 11-14 years. Thriller writer James Patterson takes a story told largely from the point of view of adults, in his earlier When the Wind Blows and The Lake House, and centers the narration on the five children called "the flock." They're the product of experimentation on human and avian DNA. Think wings, big wings. When the novel begins, they're living alone and apart, and Max, short for Maximum Ride and the oldest, is their leader, mother, tactical planner and sometimes sulky teenage girl as well.

It starts out, Bang! On the first page, the reader meets Brianne Parker, a 24-year-old professional killer with a "pleasantly plump baby face" but no qualms about doing her job. Within five and half pages, it becomes about as cool, cruel, scary as you can get. There's more. Lots more -- intricately conceived, punctiliously executed, with murderous bank robberies. The tale unrolls almost entirely in and around Washington and suburban Maryland. There are two FBI agents, Betsey Cavalierre and Kyle Craig, who collaborate with the main character, Alex Cross.

When it comes to reading, there's no mystery about the Ravens' favorite author. James Patterson is the novelist of choice among Ravens players, according to an informal survey taken the past two weeks. Offensive tackle Jonathan Ogden, kicker Matt Stover, punter Sam Koch, fullback Le'Ron McClain and long snapper Matt Katula are voracious readers of everything written by Patterson. Patterson has sold an estimated 130 million copies and is perhaps best known for his Alex Cross series, which was brought to the big screen with Morgan Freeman's portrayal of the forensic psychologist in Along Came a Spider and Kiss the Girls.
