Two full years on the Locus Bestsellers' list

I noted earlier that my latest novel, Rollback, is in its third consecutive month on the Locus paperback bestsellers' list, and, for the second month in a row, it's the highest-ranked SF title. (Locus is the US trade journal of the science-fiction field.)

Three months is a long run on the Locus list, but I think I'm even more pleased to note that my most recent appearance is my 24th time being on the Locus list.

Since the Locus list is compiled monthly, that means that Robert J. Sawyer novels have now spent a total of two full years on the Locus list. Woohoo!

My first appearance, at #5 on the list, was in 1996 for my Starplex in paperback, and every novel of mine since (and including) 1997's Illegal Alien has made the list. My highest-ranked appearance was #1 (and by a wide margin, too, according to the accompanying notes) for the Calculating God paperback, as reported in the October 2001 issue.

Go me! :)
