Sales rankings of various Lee and Miller books -- an incomplete list on Sunday morning
Sales rankings of various Lee and Miller books -- an incomplete list on Sunday morning

The lists below were compiled this morning, with the help of some web friends, across an hour or two, so if you go look (or if you go and buy or order!) the ranking may vary a little. We have none of the Meisha Merlin books in these lists because they are, by force, out of print and we're unlikely to see much in the way of recompense for them, however many may sell -- likewise the Ace and Del Rey editions.  I shoul;d point out that the Baen novel collections start hitting on June 1, and if you're the kind of person who likes to point people to reads you like, it would be good (which is to say most helpful to us and to potential future readers) to point them at the new novels -- and at the Baen collections.

Coming attractions

Well now - if you're going to Oasis 23, this is when to find us for sure. I note that we also tend to circulate during the event -- we've been known to visit the dealers room and the art show, and depending on how the hotel is set up, we can sometimes be found in and around comfy chairs .... oh, and parties, sometimes we can be found at parties...
