We're Number One... Again

Much to my surprise, my editor Anne Groell sent me an email while I was over in Europe (Germany, Sweden, Aland) to let me know that the mass market paperback of A GAME OF THRONES had hit number one on the NEW YORK TIMES bestseller list for the week of July 5.

The July 5 list shows:

New York Times Bestseller List

11. A GAME OF THRONES

Mass Market Fiction
1. A GAME OF THRONES
10. A DANCE WITH DRAGONS
11. A CLASH OF KINGS

E-book Fiction
19. A GAME OF THRONES: FIVE-BOOK SET

Combined Fiction
14. A GAME OF THRONES


All great, of course, but I have to confess, that return to #1 especially tickles.

Pretty damn good for a book first published in 1996.

(It is the return to the show to the airwaves that's responsible, of course, so thanks to HBO and David and Dan and Bryan and our amazing cast and directors... and also to Anne, and all the great folks at Bantam Spectra, who have kept all of the books in print and available for lo these long years. Long may we reign).
