Rollback moves up the Locus Bestsellers' List

I'm very pleased to note that Rollback by Robert J. Sawyer is #3 this month on the paperback bestsellers' list published by Locus, the trade journal of the science-fiction field.

I'm particularly pleased because #1 and #2 are fantasy, making Rollback the top-selling SF title for the month.

And I'm even more pleased that this is Rollback's second month on the list -- it's very rare for a novel to appear on the list for more than one month. Last month (data period: February 2008), Rollback was #7; this month (data period: March 2008), as I said, it's #3.

(There are only two other repeaters this month, and both are fantasy.)

Here's the paperback list. Figures following publisher's name are: months on list / position last month. The asterisk next to the last entry means it tied with the book above it:

1) White Night, Jim Butcher (Roc) 2 1

2) Into a Dark Realm, Raymond E. Feist (Eos) 1 -

3) Rollback, Robert J. Sawyer (Tor) 2 7

4) Grimspace, Ann Aguirre (Ace) 1 -

5) No Humans Involved, Kelley Armstrong (Bantam Spectra) 1 -

6) Madhouse, Rob Thurman (Roc) 2 8

7) Goblin War, Jim C. Hines (DAW) 1 -

8) Ender's Game, Orson Scott Card (Tor) 20 -

9) Dead to Me, Anton Stout (Ace) 1 -

*) Von Neumann's War, John Ringo & Travis Taylor (Baen) 1 -

The full list is also online at Locus's site here.

Hm ... so if I'm #7 this month, does that mean it's my turn to be #3 next month? :-)
