Also,wasn;t tht around Worldcon time, and various of us who were there, were 
busily telling other people about the new Lois works, to people who had been 
previously unaware....

BOB!!:  I don't know anything about Amazon's sales voodoo, but I do know
that Amazon just sent an email announcing it, presumably because our
Kindle has been used to buy several of your books. So I would guess that
the jump is due to Amazon putting the word out for you.

LMB:  Aha.  I wouldn't be surprised if that explains it.

I see it just went to #992 this past hour, which is goofy for a book
that won't be released for another 6 months.  This is not a _complaint_,
mind you.

I expect that pop will last about three or fours days, then drift down
again. ....
