None of last week’s bestselling books managed to hold their place in the wake of this week’s new releases. Thomas Ligotti’s new collection easily took the top spot over Steven Erikson’s Malazan book despite it’s strong showing. Historically, both authors have sold well for us, so their place at the top was not a surprise.

Each of the top 5 magazines has had a new issue recently. In the case of ASIM, it’s just recently arrived. Takes a while to get issues from Australia. It was down to the wire as to which would take the top spot. In the end, Subterranean beat out Weird Tales by one copy. The distance between 2nd and 3rd was considerable.
