When I came into Powell's recently to purchase this title, a sales person informed me the single copy you had in stock had sold the previous week and that you "might" be reordering it some time in the future. Given the tremendous critical response to the book in print on on radio, I thought this was an odd response. Now that "Apollo's Angels" has made the New York Times list of Top Ten Books of the year, I hope that "might" will turn to a "will."
