Rush's Clockwork Angels: The Novel Is New York Times Bestseller

Clockwork Angels: the Novel, the companion work to Rush's new album of the same name, has reached the number 18 spot on the New York Times Hardcover Fiction best sellers list.

The book, written by Rush drummer Neil Peart and sci-fi writer Kevin J. Anderson, was published by ECW Press on September 1.

"Most of you are aware of my long-standing friendship with Neil Peart, the drummer and lyricist from the legendary rock band Rush, as well as how much Rush has influenced my work," said Anderson a few months ago.

"My first novel, Resurrection, Inc., was closely inspired by the Rush album Grace Under Pressure, and I can point to dozens of other novels and stories that bear a clear Rush influence."

A preview of the novel's first chapter is available at Rolling Stone magazine's website.
