Activity in June was so intense that 19 of last month’s posts now rank among this blog’s 25 most-viewed of all-time.
The reason is the huge amount of dialogue in the comments section. Five posts drew over 1,000 comments.
“Lord Foul’s Baying,” the June 14 roundup, is not only the month’s top post but trails only the photo essay about the Bradbury house teardown as this blog’s most-read entry. It collected over 1,300 comments. The attraction was a large number of varied and popular discussions carried on simultaneously: Ray Blank sounded out the crowd about a Qatar Worldcon bid, both Brad R. Torgersen and John C. Wright participated in the debate, and others answered “Who’s the author you have most of on your shelves?” That was also the day Tom Kratman left the building….
