Maybe we should all contact James Patterson and suggest that he actually do this?

Some other good articles on that page too.
Already dubbed by the Times of London as the "Dead Author Nobel," the prize will honor an esteemed writer who never won the Nobel Prize in Literature, which cannot be given posthumously. That long and distinguished list includes Leo Tolstoy, Anton Chekhov, Marcel Proust, Franz Kafka, Thomas Hardy, Henry James, Mark Twain, Virginia Woolf, James Joyce, D.H. Lawrence, Philip Roth and Don DeLillo.

Someone's saying "The rumours of my death have been greatly exaggerated", and this time it's not Twain, lol.
