does “rogue” sell books?

Of course we remember Freakonomics: A Rogue Economist Explores the Hidden Side of Everything.  And then Levitt’s sometime co-author writes Gang Leader for a Day: A Rogue Sociologist Takes to the Streets.  And just the other day I saw Rogue Economics: Capitalism’s New Reality.

Maybe rogue economics will become a new subfield for hopeful grad students.  Instead of being a labor and development economist, I could be a rogue economist (you know, I took the two-semester “rogue” sequence) taught by Levitt, Venkatesh, and – of course – Annja Creed, star of the Rogue Angel books, to add a bit of derring-do.

From wikipedia:

Rogue Angel is a paper back series of novels published bi-monthly since July 2006 by Harlequin Publishing’s Gold Eagle division. … The books deliver high-octane action, a basis in history with a twist on the fantastical, and more than a hint of derring-do.

And where are the rogue anthropologists?  I typed that into Amazon Books and got Where Bigfoot Walks, so maybe that’s a hint.
