Here’s a good one. Amazon just categorized Long Live Earth as historical fiction:
Amazon Best Sellers Rank: #54 in Books > Children’s Books > Literature & Fiction > Historical Fiction > Prehistory
I guess it was presumptuous of me but I assumed that an evolution theme would be lumped in somewhere (anywhere) amongst the non-fiction. Read the first first few pages of Long Live Earth below… pretty straightforward stuff.
Who is pulling those levers over there anyway? Is the Great Oz of Amazon a Creationist? Or is just his algorithm a Creationist?
Oh well. If Long Live Earth (and evolution) have to be categorized as prehistorical fiction I should at least be grateful that it has made the top 100 in that list. I think.
