The MountCan someone in the Albany-Schnctady-Troy region of New York explain to us what’s up with the (very nice!) bump in sales of Carol Emshwiller’s The Mount?

We’re very happy and are wondering if a local bookshop has it as a staff pick,or if the whole city is reading it, or it has been assigned to a class or it’s some kind of cruel trick or . . . something?

Also: Carol will be reading in New York City next month:

Wed., Feb 13, 8-10 PM
Carol Emshwiller, Ellen Kushner, Delia Sherman, Veronica Schanoes
Think Coffee, Cup & Pen Presents Small Beer Press
248 Mercer Street
(between 3rd and 4th streets)
New York, NY
(212) 228-6226

    As a hypothesis, the local independent bookstore’s owner might be pushing it. The store is Flights of Fantasy and I have it on good authority that it is a very good store in that regard.

    Maybe it’s the beginning of a National Trend.

    (Well, it would be nice.)

    This might or might not be a good place to mention that Magic for Beginners made the bestseller list again for 2007 at my Seattle indie bookstore.

    James, that is awesome! We will of course be sending you a copy of John Kessel’s book. See you at BEA in LA?
