Holy Crap

At the moment, "The Sagan Diary" is at #262 #207 #194 #179 on Amazon and #12 #11 #9 #8 on its science fiction bestseller list. I guess people like the audio version. But with such truly fabulous readers involved, who can blame them.

Thanks, folks. "Sagan" was a real experiment for me, and I'm really happy that so far people seem to be coming along for the ride. And yet again, thanks to Elizabeth Bear, Mary Robinette Kowal, Ellen Kushner, Karen Meisner, Cherie Priest and Helen Smith. Clearly, I owe them all a kidney. This could be a problem.

Congrats!!! I'm trying to resist the audio version actually and wait for my copy to come in.

So...if Bill Schafer wet himself when Coffee Shop cracked 1000, have you checked to see if he's okay? I mean, with these numbers, you might need to call paramedics in.

Wow! Guess I'd better order mine sooner than later - I just finished Android's Dream - I guess I'm behind the curve!

1) Dice it up small.

2) Headline: Subterranean Press acquires controlling interest in Bertelsmann Foundation.

(Is there a missing closing tag in Cephyn's comment?)

John Scalzi | February 6, 2007 01:42 AM

I fixed it, David.

Steve Buchheit | February 6, 2007 07:56 AM

Congrats, man. A good project gone fantabulous.

Go ahead and squee (we know you wanna). You deserve it.

Steve Buchheit | February 6, 2007 07:58 AM

*cough* John, you fixed that link? Maybe not. *cough*

Oh, and Dave Moles, not even God could buy into Bertelsmann.

David Moles | February 6, 2007 08:39 AM

Not with money.

Bill Schafer | February 6, 2007 08:50 AM

Mary: I've had certain resources rerouted since the Coffeshop fecal fiasco, so there's no danger of Amazon rankings causing a brownout in any major systems.

Thanks for your concern, though.

It's no problem at all. You owe them a kidney, fine, but nothing says it has to be originally yours.

Todd Stull | February 6, 2007 10:44 AM

You've got two, anyways.

Matt W | February 6, 2007 10:48 AM

No one even said the kidney had to be human. One trip to the butcher shop and you could be swimming in kidneys.

Steve Buchheit | February 6, 2007 10:50 AM

And what are Chinese prisoners for anyway?

Bryan Price | February 8, 2007 07:45 AM

I'm still looking for that damn UPS truck.
