I have a new first name

When Jerry Garcia of the Grateful Dead was informed that, with "Touch of Grey," for the first time in the band's 30-year history they had a top-ten single, he said, "I am appalled."

I spoke with my editor, TNH, last night. It seems the New York Times has this thing called an "expanded list" which includes, I don't know, some number of best-sellers more than ten, and Dzur is number 30. All of which is to say that, on all my books and related material, my name will henceforth be: "New York Times Bestselling Author Steven Brust."

I am trying to decide how I feel about this.
