Last night I had a dream that the someone was showing me that the trade paperback version of Redshirts had gotten to number five on the New York Times paperback bestseller list, and in my dream, I remember clearly responding, “yeah, but this is a dream, so I’m not going to go and get too excited about that.” And then I woke up, not in the least excited. Or disappointed, I suppose. Even so, being one of those people who almost always knows he is dreaming does take some of the fun out of process.
On the other hand, Redshirts is number one on this paperback bestseller list, and “by an enormous margin” at that, so I don’t think I will complain too much.
Unless I am dreaming now?!?

Nope. Real life.
