This week represents a work week one-day shorter than normal. By mid-week, people stopped the rush to get books for the holidays, so we had a tilt towards the preorders that came in. Teatro Grottesco had heavy preorders and easily kept Tim Powers from taking what seems like a regular top-spot anytime something new comes out. Carnival had a lot of Christmas gift orders to keep it sailing smoothly in the top 5.
Nothing too unusual with the magazine sales. A few big back-issue orders brought Weird Tales back up into the mix and Realms seemed to have a stronger than normal week. Several magazines sent us new issues that week and I’m still getting those listed now that the store is open again.
Teatro Grottesco had heavy preorders and easily kept Tim Powers from taking what seems like a regular top-spot anytime something new comes out.
I’ve seen enough of your lists to notice that about the Powers. Anyway, I’m looking forward to that one. Cheers, Neil, and a Happy New Year to you and yours!
…I mean, I’m looking forward to Teatro Grottesco.
