First, Tor notified me that the hardback is being remaindered, and offered me an opportunity to buy additional copies. This isn’t bad news — it’s a normal part of the life cycle of a book, and we’re all quite pleased with the sell-through — but it’s still a little disappointing.
Second, my lovely and talented agent posted the news that the mass market paperback is tied for #9 on the Locus bestseller list. This is good news, and quite balanced out my thinking for the day.
The fact that both these bits of information landed on my desk on the same day is stretching the irony meter just a little bit, though.
