VanityFair.com: The Vanity Fair 100 –
Like the economy, V.F.’s annual ranking of the top 100 Information Age powers has been truly shaken up, with new blood emerging. Who’s in? Who’s out? Who’s top dog?
82. Stephenie Meyer
STAGE OF GLOBAL CONQUEST: The Mormon housewife’s Twilight teen-vampire romance novels sold nearly 29 million copies in one year, capturing the top four positions on the USA Today best-seller list for 2008, making her the first author ever to do so. (J. K. Rowling came close with Nos. 1, 2, 3, and 5 with her Harry Potter titles in 2000.)
Are you surprised to see that Stephenie landed on this list? I’m not, I expected her to be a bit higher though.
I also expected to see Charlaine Harris on the list. Did you hope to see more of our favorite supernatural writers on the list?
