Cool. MHV came out a few months ago, but it is still hanging in there and selling well. I have no idea how Locus calculates their list, but I was #5. Which is odd, because I sold a much higher number of books during the release month (October, when I made the New York Times bestseller list) but I didn’t show up on Locus then, but Bookscan had MHV as the #4 fantasy novel in the country.
I don’t know how these bestseller lists work. They’re like voodoo or something. Maybe they hired that octopus that predicted the World Cup. I don’t know.
So both of my released novels have made the Locus list. Let’s see if we can get Hard Magic on there next. Maybe one of these days Locus will review/mention me.
Oh, and writing update. There are not going to be three Larry Correia releases in 2011. There are going to be FOUR. TGC:1 in May, MHA in August, D6 in October, and TGC:2 in November. EDITED for clarity. I forgot that it is 2011 already. 🙂
Yep. Things are hopping around here. 🙂

Locus surveys SF-specific bookstores and convention retailers, and there’s a 6 month lag in reports.
The thing that gets me is I can not find the new book in the book stores here, I ended up getting as an Ebook form Baen.
awesome. four is more than three and in America more is always better. you mean this year though right, 2011?
FOUR releases? Cool!
four?! that is so cool. I’m really going to have to step up my reading pace! can. not. wait.
FOUR! I hope you realize this means you have to put out eight books in 2012. No going back now.
Holy crap! You gotta be trying for some sort of record to release four books in a year.
I don’t mind, though. Keep ’em coming. 😀
Larry you’re trying to make us all go broke aren’t you?
On an unrelated topic… Are you going to LTUE this year? Because I will be going this year, and I’ll need to bring copies of your books for you to autograph. 😉
Good thing I ordered my Special Agent Decoder Ring & Time Travel combo kit from the internet the other day. I went express on shipping…..
Four, hooray! All the more for me to read.
…Anyone consulting the Wold Cup octopus will need a Ouija board or at least a decent necromancer.
