LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

o what happens when a book like "The Horse Whisperer" hits it big? Publishers crank out book after book on horses. Was that why people read the book--horses? Maybe, maybe not, but publishers typically place their money and their mouth where they have historically seen success. Boston Phoenix's Tom Scocca takes a look at some copycat books for this fall in "Coattail Lit."
