I don't remember writing a technothriller


I'm amazed to discover that the paperback of Taking Comfort is the number two bestseller in amazon uk's technothriller chart. Just below a Michael Crichton omnibus and one above a Tom Clancy novel.

This is staggering news for a number of reasons, most of all because I wouldn't myself class Taking Comfort as a technothriller. Unlike this book. Or this one. Or this one.

Of course, by the time you check out the list I will have sunk back down into obscurity. But I enjoyed my brief moment in the technothriller sun. Alternatively, you could help me knock Michael Crichton off the top spot. Now that would be cool.

Nope, you're still there.

Anyway, however long you end up being there - congratulations!

Taking Comfort is so absolutely hot and classy that it deserves to be the number one spot in everything! And yes, I would class it as a (literary) techno-thriller. As well as being a post-modernist classic, a psychological thriller, etc etc.

Basically, it's fab!

Thanks faye, anne and nik. Down I go, number 9 now. I'll stop looking. Honest. I have a book to write!

Yep, still number 9--even though they update hourly!

Who even knew such a list existed? (Who decides what is eligible?)

Like it or not, it's a now a technothriller, and you should push it that way for all it's worth.

I understand that "Taking Comfort" also prevents tooth decay, and makes a great Christmas gift! No home should be without one.
