With a bullet, as they say. Or in this case, maybe a phaser set on stun.
Anyway, here's this month's bestseller list for media-related titles from Locus, the official and unofficial newsmagazine of the science fiction world:
1) Star Trek: The Folded World, Jeff Mariotte (Pocket Books) 1 -
2) Star Trek: The Shocks of Adversity, William Leisner (Pocket Books) 1 -
*) Star Wars: Book of Sith, Daniel Wallace (Chronicle) 2 2
4) After Earth: A Perfect Beast, Michael Jan Friedman, Robert Greenberger & Peter David (Del Rey) 1 -
*) Star Wars: Dawn of the Jedi, Into the Void, Tim Lebbon (Del Rey) 1 -
Star Trek: The Folded World by Jeff Mariotte debuted at first place on the media-related titles this month, and there was no new runner-up. There were 16 titles nominated, up from last month’s 12.
The number after the title indicates how many months a book has been on the list. If there's a number after that, it's the book's position last month. The asterisk means a virtual tie with the title above it.
It ain't the New York Times...but it's good to be a number one bestseller, regardless.
