October 2013 Bestsellers

Tags:

Was it all spooky, all the time? Well, there was some dark fantasy in there courtesy of Paula Guran’s Year’s Best, but at the top end of the charts were 2 magazines fighting it out for top spot. BCS took one spot and CW another. Too many acronyms?

In first place was The Best of Beneath Ceaseless Skies Year Four (with Beneath Ceaseless Skies itself at #2 in subscriptions) which seems absolutely right given that “The Telling” by Gregory Norman Bossert  from Beneath Ceaseless Skies’s 11/29/12 issue just won the World Fantasy Award for best short story! Congratulations to Gregory and to Scott, the editor—and of course to all the winners and nominees. BCS was also in the middle of their 5th Anniversary Sale.

A year ago there was an unofficial Clarkesworld subscription drive after editor and publisher Neil Clarke posted that he had lost his day job. Of course you can read Clarkesworld for free, but as Neil points out in his November editorial:

To add that long-awaited fourth story in each issue, we need to convince another 1% of our online readership to subscribe.

So if you’re a fan, here’s my earliest Xmas gift suggestion: a Clarkesworld subscription!
