LISTED CANADIANS [Nov. 6th, 2007|12:25 pm]
Bakka-Phoenix Books -- Canada's Oldest Science Fic


I just finished sending Locus our bestselling titles for October. It gave me a rush of vicarious pride: Canadians claimed a lot of spots. On the mass-market list: Jo Walton's Farthing was #2, Robert Charles Wilson's Spin was #3 (it's been on the list since February), and Karl Schroeder's Sun Of Suns sat at #7 *. On the hardcover list: Wilson's Axis held at #2, Schroeder's Queen Of Candesce rose to #3, and Robert J. Sawyer's collection Relativity came back onto the list at #4.

Impressive, eh?

* Karen Miller's Awakened Mage was #10. Karen was born in Canada, but moved to Australia at the age of two. I'm tempted to claim her anyway, whaddya think?

Unless they've changed the rules for determining who/what qualifies for Canadiana, someone born here (and who is likely still a citizen) counts.

If bluejo counts as a Canadian now, having emigrated to Montreal as an adult, then Karen should probably be counted as an Aussie.

OTOH I tend to think of Alex Trebek as a Canadian, so do what thou wilt.

Sounds good to me. I didn't include S.M. Stirling -- he's now an American citizen, and happy to be so.
