Another Millions Millennium List for the Independents please…

More ink, or whatever – computer screen characters? -, on The Millions’ Millennium list over at Contra James Wood, where the anti-capitalist harangue continues, (legitimately in this instance), blaming the tight scope of titles selected upon limits imposed by corporate American publishing. The Canadian Giller Prize has long been subjected to the same criticism. Basically, a marketing tool for the big houses. Perhaps it might be worthwhile to engage in another list exercise, this time excluding the big publishers, reading and embracing only the independents? In fact, this might be easily achieved  on paper with the existing statistics.
