Based on sales at Clarkesworld Books ( for the week ending December 5th, 2004.

I’m a little late doing the bestseller list this week. Still running a bit slow from this cold. The two Steven Erikson books hopped back into the top five where they had been before we ran out of them. This is the unsigned (2nd and 3rd) paperback edition from PS Publishing.

The new issue of Interzone is just in. It’s number 2 slot last week was earned with sales from the prior issue.


Making my week

All four of us are sick. It’s not a good week.

Well, that was until today’s mail showed up. Today’s shipments included the latest issue of Black Gate Magazine. The editorial had this to say:

“If you’re looking to add Black Gate to a book order, one of the best new online bookstores to appear in some time is Clarkesworld Books…”

A big thank you to John O’Neill, the editor of Black Gate Magazine for making my week. Now go buy his magazine 🙂


New Issue of Postscripts

With two kids underfoot, I get free time in chunks that are more suitable to reading short stories than anything else. I’ve always loved them, but this situation has pushed me to another level. At any time, I have at least one collection and a couple of magazines in progress. Time for novels is squeezed in and around these.

I’ve been eagerly awaiting issue #2 of Postscripts Magazine and our shipment finally arrived today. PS Publishing has produced some great novellas, so I’ve had high expectations for this one. The first was a nice showing and having the signed edition was an extra plus. (I’m a huge James Blaylock fan.) After the kids go to bed and all the orders are packed, I’m going to find a nice comfy spot to sit back and read. Maybe I’ll light the fireplace. Yeah, that sounds good…

And tomorrow I’ll start wondering when Subterranean Magazine will ship.
