Web traffic from MYXOCENE shuts down Amazon

Apologies to anyone who received an error message when trying to check out MYXOCENE on Amazon today. Apparently this was a website-wide problem (yes, even Colum McCann's books were triggering the error). Since I just announced the book yesterday and a number of people received an email about it this morning, I'm certain the resulting rush of book seekers had something to do with the crash.

At any rate, the problem is resolved, so feel free to go to Amazon and snag a copy.
