From the Locus June 2006 issue, so this would presumably be for May 2006:

Trade Paperback Bestsellers (Barnes & Noble)
#1: Chronicles of Narnia (C.S. Lewis)
#2: The Nymphos of Rocky Flats (Mario Acevedo)
#3: Fahrenheit 451 (Ray Bradbury)
#4: Thunderbird Falls (C.E. Murphy)
#5: Kindred (Octavia Butler)

Mario Acevedo is the guy from the Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers whose book came in second behind RIGHT ANGLES TO FAERYLAND in 2002 when Teresa Nielson Hayden judged the Colorado Gold contest. NYMPHOS is, in fact, that book. Teresa said specifically that she'd had a terrible time deciding between the two, because NYMPHOS was a wholly original book done very well, and ANGLES was a visitation of old tropes done perfectly. Brava, brava, bravissima, Mario! *beam*

Two of the other three people on that list are dead, and the other one is RAY BRADBURY.

I can live with that. :)

madmiss, can you save me a copy of the June Locus, if they're not sold out? If they are, I'll put out a distress signal on-blog for someone to send me a copy. I really *must* resubscribe. O.O
