|BOOKS THAT FLY

Every month we send Locus Magazine a list of our best selling titles. This month, we thought we'd share that list.|
Mass Market Titles
1. Under Cover Of Darkness, Julie E. Czerneda & Jana Paniccia, Eds. (3rd month at #1, which is especially impressive for an anthology)
2. Rainbow's End, Vernor Vinge
3. Children Of Magic, Martin H. Greenberg & Kerrie Hughes, Eds.
4. Women Of War, Tanya Huff & Alexander Potter, Eds.
5. Fantasy Gone Wrong, Martin H. Greenberg & Brittany A. Koren, Eds.

7. Sharing Knife: Beguilement, Lois McMaster Bujold
8. Kitty Takes A Holiday, Carrie Vaughn
9. Judas Unchained, Peter F. Hamilton
10. Magic Bites, Ilona Andrews
1. Rollback, Robert J. Sawyer (by a huge margin - more than the rest of the hardcovers put together)
2. Children Of Hurin, J.R.R. Tolkien (sadly, not the deluxe version)
3. Relativity, Robert J. Sawyer
4. 1634: The Baltic War, David Weber & Eric Flint
5. Lees Of Laughter's End, Steven Erikson*
6. Sun Over Breda, Arturo Perez-Reverte

Trade Paperback Titles (Locus only asks for five of these)
1. Lies Of Locke Lamora, Scott Lynch
2. Coyote Dreams, C.E. Murphy
3. Alchemist's Apprentice, Dave Duncan
4. Solstice Wood, Patricia A. McKillip
5. Air Geoff Ryman
So there you are: our bestselling titles for April 2007. Neat, huh? As always, some rankings were expected (we launched Rollback, and Rob always draws a huge crowd), some are not (in this case, Andrews' Magic Bites was a surprise success), and some are persistent sellers (Ryman's Air has been on this list for the better part of a year).
* It's a Malazan novella (NOT the new novel), but if you want one, you'd better come soon. Once they're gone, they're gone for good
Is it usual for so many anthologies to be top sellers? 4 of the top 5 really surprised me.
It's a little unusual, but we were involved in several events for Under Cover. And Children contains "An End To All Things", by the inimitable Karina Sumner-Smith, which is currently up for a Nebula Award.

An excellent story.
(It did make me smile to see Children on the list. Still makes me smile.)
Did you know that CHILDREN is into its second printing? Well, er, now you do.
I think Karina mentioned that to me on the weekend. ::bouncebounce:: Most cool!
Yay! Ilona rocks. Yep. Yep.
