STEPHEN FRY'S low opinion of journalists is reinforced by Captain Moonlight's mischievously incomplete report of the selling of hardbacks of Fry's best-selling novel, The Hippopotamus, at half-price (5 March). Captain Moonlight should know that this is normal practice once the paperback comes out. What is more, it is selling at a fantastic rate.
