Benjie Whitmer's novel "Pike" moving relentlessly up the charts

Well, no. Currently it's number 341,476 in Amazon's top 100.

No customer reviews.

Remember how Benjie told me he'd "shoot me a copy" to review before it came out?

Yeah, me neither. If he had, I think I would have increased his sales by 3000 percent.

Benjie, in case anyone's forgotten, has deleted two blogs out of fear of what his slanderous style might reap.

Update: Former Rocky Mountain News editorial gink Linda Seebach wrote a few days ago to tell me Whitmer's Roman a jerk had sunk to about 500,000 on Amazon's Top 100. I just looked today (10/7/10) and it was at 677, 730. Amazon claims to rate "over 700,000" books, so Whitmer's about to drop off the end of the earth. Benjie, if you'd sent me a copy as you promised, I swear I'd have described it as "a wild roller-coaster ride," maybe even a "searing indictment," but no, you had to pussy out, as you always do. Hey, planning on being arrested for Columbus Day this year?
