Future of Bestsellers

Shoot the Buffalo is a bestseller! A bestseller in the Small Press Distributor’s fiction list that is. It makes me wonder if in the future as the brick and morter store gives way to web-based stores if there will be bestsellers in all categories, bestselling titles with the word “Shoot” in the title, bestsellers among books with green covers, bestsellers by writers living on streets named “Ruffner.”
