I think this is the first time I’ve had a tie in our list. I’m very pleased with the showing of The Labyrinth. As I’ve said before, it’s excellent. It was only outsold by a book that had very strong preorders and another that had a large UK bulk order.

Weird Tales continues to have a strong showing. We just picked up a bunch of back issues since there has been so much interest. Alchemy is definitely deserving of it’s place in the top 5. Definitely my favorite for the month.
