Of course, what else should I expect from the birthplace of my ancestors besides a dysfunctional relationship?
Waste Land is the #1 free iTunes sci fi short story there. It's also #1 in the broader free science fiction and literature category, and #5 in the free 'sci fi & fantasy' category, the broadest of the categories I can hope to aspire to (after that it's just 'books', which includes every book published). That's the first time I've broken the top ten in any country, in the SF & F category.
'Thief who Spat' on the other hand is only #18 in its epic category, #132 in general fantasy, and doesn't even make the top 200 in the free sci fi & fantasy.
To which I can only say to Ireland, I love/hate you, too*.
(*Just kidding. Only love flows from me as from a font towards the Emerald Isle of my progenitors.)
