I count SIX fantasy titles, FOUR dark fantasy titles, and ONE science fiction title (which was the new Hitchhiker book). There was nothing of note on the opposite side (strange gift-type things). Oh, and I didn’t count Goodkind, because he doesn’t write anything in the genre. 🙂
This is in the only real bookstore chain in the UK now, and they centralise their decisions – which means this pattern is rolled out across the few hundred of their stores. These decisions are, of course, based on what people are buying – it’s a business, after all. (See how the circle works?) There was no paperback table there (although just before I entered the section, there was a massive table of paranormal romance / post-Twilight books).
See what I mean now? Because the BULK of people will be buying these books in the run-up to Christmas. You can do the sums yourself.
