[img_assist|nid=2369|title=The Grey Lady gets nailed|desc=|link=none|url=undefined|align=right|width=406|height=269]You did it, Junkies! You put this scrawny walking cadaver on the New York Times Muthafucking Hardcover Fiction Bestseller list!

That's right, in the first week of release, CONTAGIOUS hit #33. The hardcover fiction list is like the Super Bowl of bestseller lists, it's the big-time, and even #33 is a pretty damn big accomplishment.

From this moment on, and for the rest of my life, I get to say "New York Times Bestselling Author Scott Sigler." Granted, I'm used to hearing "will the defendant please rise" and this is way, way better.

This is all you guys. Thanks for your constant support, and thanks for rallying around a strong opening weekend for CONTAGIOUS. Next novel out, our goal will be to crack the top 15, but for now, nailing the Grey Lady feels just fiiiiiiine.

YEAH! Wait...

When the new NYT bestseller list came out, you were nowhere to be found on it. Perhaps they finally realized the powers of siglerism and decided to put you on it.

You've busted your ass to make this happen -- CONGRATULATIONS!

Congrats to you and the evil queen!!! You are the hardest-working author I know of.

Scott, this is awesome! You deserve this brother. And you make it easy for us to help you: you write great fiction--we buy it! It'll be great to see if there's some additional press about this within the publishing world. You mold-breaker...

BS may talk, but PROFITS walk, even at the stodgy NYT!

Yo Scott: Your crazy life-long dreams are starting to come true. I'm buying a hardcover tomorrow at SF book signing to help you and to show a little love to Borderlands Books. You take the time to pay real attentions to us fans and your product is ss over-the-top good, anyway. Like you have said, you are "an overnight sensation that took 15 years". I hope the book stays on the NYT Bestsellers list and maybe even moves up a peg or two. Go Junkies go! Lets put our FDO where he belongs! "More to come... Number ONE! More to come... Number ONE!"  See you tomorrow you lovable B*s***d!

Tragically Hip said it best...

The sweet sound of patent approval,

comin' down in a world of hurt,
In my opinion the drug is ready.

Even in the best and worst of times, we need stories. They define us, they provoke us and move us. The NY Times list is a big target to establish to the masses what us junkies already know. Great stories are a drug, and Sigler keeps on feeding us.

I love it. I also love that the local Indigo Books store has you listed in the Literature section. Each time I go in, I rearrange the books to show off the cover.

Congrats FDO.

Its about time that they

Its about time that they realized you actually put best swelling authors on the list of best selling authors.  Now correct me if I am wrong which obviously I am not but you technically had enough books sold last april that you should be a NYT Best Selling author twice over not just for the first time FDO.  You are a supremely evil FDO and you are going to really make them sorry that they didn't recognize your greatness sooner.
