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 :)
