Musings on sales and popularity of genre...

 According to most conventional wisdom,fantasy is drastically more popular than SF of all types; yet Spheres of Influence just broke 20 reviews on Amazon compared to Phoenix Rising, which has only 12 despite being out a year longer, and what little I know of Spheres' sales indicates it's outselling Phoenix too.

While obviously an author's quality will vary off and on, I don't think Phoenix is SIGNIFICANTLY worse than either GCA or Spheres, so I was kinda expecting Phoenix to do better than my SF ventures, but that appears not to be the case.
