Why am I still amazed?
A number of reasons - I never expected the series to sell more than 100 e-books over the seven-books in the series because nothing else I wrote www.barnesandnoble.com/s/%22Alan%20Place%22?Ntk=P_key_Contributor_List&Ns=P_Sales_Rank&Ntx=mode+matchall has sold.
I thought by now, the sales would have dried up totally but they keep coming, even after two and a half years.
Before this, I hadn't written any sci-fi, and although I am a Star Trek www.theguardian.com/film/2016/jul/08/star-trek-beyond-sulu-gay-progressive-sexuality fan, I have read very little sci-fi - even if my work is likened to the work of Ray Bradbury www.biography.com/people/ray-bradbury-9223240 and H.P. Lovecraft www.hplovecraft.com/.
As a footnote, I sent one of my stories to Arkham House Publishers www.abebooks.co.uk/books/rarebooks/lovecraft-weird-fiction-horror/arkham-house.shtml three years ago, because they published H.P. Lovecraft.
