I AM NUMBER SIX!

Hey, thank The Big Charlton Heston Impersonator In the Sky for independent bookstores, or the majority of Australian SF writers would have nothing to brag about.

Which is my way of saying Through Soft Air was the 6th highest selling title for Fantastic Planet Bookstore during 2006.

Outselling the likes of Adrian Bedford, Marianne De Pierres, and Simon Haynes is a nice fillip for the ego. Outselling the likes of Charles de Lint, George RR Martin and Neil Gaiman proves that statistics mean nothing :)

Whether it means something or nothing matters not one witty twitter, Lee. It's nice. And you've helped keep Fantastic Planet going, too:-)

Well done, mate! Sixth is better than seventh anyway...

6th is an incredibly good result, and you're right to be happy about it. Given the huge amount of work that goes into writing and publishing a book, shouldn't we be allowed a little public cheer when there's evidence people are actually, you know, buying it?

Just wanted to say how much I admired 'Pater Familias' - read it for the first time in Aus Dark Fantasy and Horror - it's just great - a perfect little horror story, as finely crafted as a fob watch.
