This article focuses on book briefs. The New York Times released its list of the ten best books of the year, with Knopf and Simon & Schuster leading the pack with two titles each. Curiously, though 42 of the titles on the 100 list were fiction, six books on the ten best list are fiction. Kensington Publishing Corp., New York has acquired three books co-written by Tim LaHayne, author of the Left Behind novels, and Gregory Dinalo, author of 1994 New York Times notable book "Final Answers." The second title, "The Best Christmas Gift," will be published in October.
