Douglas Preston’s new novel Impact crashes off The New York Times bestsellers list

As predicted, Impact, the new Mars-related thriller by Macmillan author Douglas Preston that had reached #4 on The New York Times’s hardcover fiction bestseller list earlier this year, has crashed off the list. Presumably, this has something to do with Preston’s recent remarks belittling readers who oppose higher e-book prices and consumers who shop at Wal-Mart.

In related news, Amazon’s “Verified Purchase” program still has not confirmed that bestselling gothic author Anne Rice bought 10 copies of Impact in support of Preston, as she claimed on her blog more than two weeks ago. In short, Rice's latest piece of fiction!
