Robert J. Sawyer

Hugo and Nebula Award-Winning Science Fiction Writer

Missed it by *that* much!

The mass-market paperback of my novel WWW: Wake is currently #2 on the bestsellers’ list published in Locus, the US trade journal of the science-fiction field — and I just missed getting the #1 spot. A note accompanying the list says: “The Lost Fleet: Victorious by Jack Campbell just nudged ahead of WWW: Wake by Robert J. Sawyer in the paperback category.”

Meanwhile, the hardcover of WWW: Watch — the second volume of the trilogy — is currently at #7, in its second month on the list.

The full lists are here.

  1. Eh, you don’t want the Number One spot. Too easy for people to take potshots at you up there.

  2. You’ll catch it next year with “Wonder.”

  3. Well, Rob, you’ll just have to settle for being second, like Buzz Aldrin. ‘Not a bad place to be, really.

  4. “Wonder” why? Your writing is not meant for the “average” person. It presents way too much food for thought.
