I checked this morning and saw that “Earth Below, Sky Above,” the final episode of The Human Division, made it onto the USA Today bestseller list this week. This means that all thirteen episodes hit that particular bestseller list, one a week, for thirteen straight weeks. That’s pretty sweet.
And in fact, I pretty strongly suspect it might be a record of some sort. I mean, I suppose it’s possible that someone else has gotten on to the USA Today bestseller list with a new title a week for thirteen consecutive weeks; I haven’t checked. But given how things have usually been published up to this point in the US, I have to say I think it’s actually really unlikely. On the other hand, if the serial format takes off, I might eventually lose the record. That’s fair. Until then: Mine, baby. I will take it.
So to those of you who followed along episodically: Thank you. You’ve officially made my day.
