Amazon’s Top 5 Fantasy Books, January 9, 2011

Its an epic/urban slugfest to kick off 2011, with two novels each by H.P. Mallory and George R.R. Martin making the top 5. In a hilarious contrast, we have novels from one of the best epic fantasy series in recent history sharing the top 5 with what has to be one of the cheesiest urban fantasy series ever, stealing its titles from Shakespeare. I’m really not sure which takes the cake: a novel titled “Fire Burn and Cauldron Bubble, A Paranormal Romance”, or “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter”, which we saw in the top 5 in 2010. Ricidulous. Anyway, definitely worth noting is the fact that all 5 novels in the top 5 this week are Kindle editions. Will we say goodbye brick and mortar stores in 2011?

  1. Fire Burn and Cauldron Bubble, a Paranormal Romance (Kindle) by H.P. Mallory
  2. A Game of Thrones (Kindle) by George R.R. Martin
  3. Toil and Trouble, a Paranormal Romance (Kindle) by H.P. Mallory
  4. Out of the Black (Kindle) by Lee Doty
  5. A Clash of Kings (Kindle) by George R.R. Martin

  1. And don’t forget that my little futuristic fantasy rounds out the top five.

    2 epic fantasies
    2 contemporary romance fantasies
    1 futuristic comic thriller fantasy, complete with disco zombies

    🙂

  2. Lee, absolutely not! I just picked those four as we rarely see a week with two authors with two books each in the top 5. If “futuristic comic thriller fantasy” is not a category on Amazon yet, then it absolutely should be. Fantastic!
