I want a universe not parallel to this, please.

Can anyone please explain why an Amazon.com search on John M. Ford, (no link for obvious reasons) turns up a list headed by the 1535 Edition of John Calvin’s Insitututes of the Christian Religion? There will be no marks awarded for the answer “They both write historical fantasy”.

  1. I dunno, it seems to work now, both on Amazon UK and on the original.

    Amazon UK’s “Most Popular” box lists a bio of the Elizabethan John Ford, and both mix in some books about the movie director, but that’s to be expected.

    Ah. You’re right. It’s gone away now. The default sort, “by featured items”, may have had something to do with it. It is an extraordinary comment on American culture that the one-volume _Institutes_ in paperback should be at 12,928 in the Amazon sales ranking. (the_Selfish Gene_ is at 1,176).

    Do you publish Ford over here? I’d love to review his next book.

  3. Send me your ship-to address and I’ll send you a bound galley of Heat of Fusion, his impending story collection.
