January 2014 Bestsellers


Happy new year to all the bestsellers: Sofia Samatar, Apex Magazine, and the New York Review of Science Fiction! This is the second month where the bestsellers were ruled by the weekly sale titles (sign up here). Maybe I’ll give them a different chart next month. After all, if the NYTimes can keep changing their charts, so can we. Readers do love those sales! Some of the titles there are still pretty bargain priced, for example Glitter and Mayhem is only $4.99!

Apex Magazine is a real dark horse: the subscriptions are just about always on the charts, although this might be the first time an individual issue has topped the charts. Congrats to the editors, old and new, for building a growing powerhouse.

And then the subscriptions moved around a bit post-holiday. A lot of NYRSF subs had to come in to knock perennial fave Clarkesworld Magazine off the top. January was a busy month, and I am curious to see what happens this short February.
