SF/F/H on General Bestseller Lists
The three Harry Potter books by J.K. Rowling and Michael Crichton's Timeline rank high on most general lists this week. They occupy the top four slots on the NYT, LAT, and WSJ lists, in slightly different orders. Crichton is #6 in San Francisco, #1 in Washington DC, #5 at Barnes & Noble, #6 at Amazon, #5 at USAT, and #1 on the Amazon fiction and Booksense lists (which exclude children's books). Booksense's separate children's list has Harry Potter titles, including the paperback edition of the first book, in the top four slots.
The only other genre title making a consistent showing is Stephen King's Hearts of Atlantis, #10 at NYT (fiction), #27 at USAT (combined), #6 at Amazon (fiction), #20 at B&N (combined), #9 at WSJ (fiction), #14 at Booksense (fiction); but it's no longer on PW's list.
William Gibson's All Tomorrow's Parties is still selling in San Francisco, where it's #13. Thomas Harris's Hannibal hangs on a couple lists, #17 at NYT, #16 at Amazon.
