B&N Bestsellers in Science Fiction & Fantasy: September 2019

This month in SFF, comics, and manga bestseller news at Barnes & Noble: As the fall publishing season ramps up, there has been a lot of movement on the hardcover bestseller lists, with six new titles breaking into the top ten, led by the lesbian space necromancers of Tamsyn Muir’s incredibly buzzy (and buzz-worthy) debut Gideon the Ninth. Meanwhile, excitement over the final installment of Jay Kristoff’s Nevernight Chronicles has vaulted the trade paperback edition of the first installment onto the bestseller list, where it is jockeying with books that have renewed interest thanks to streaming television adaptations. Excitement over The Joker (and a few nifty B&N exclusive editions) finally unseated The Adventure Zone on the graphic novels list, while My Hero Academia continues to dominate the in manga.
