NEW YORK, NY--(MARKET WIRE)--Nov 5, 2004 -- Billy Corgan's highly acclaimed poetry book, "Blinking With Fists," debuted at #24 on the New York Times Hardcover Fiction Best Sellers List on October 31, 2004. According to Nielsen BookScan (the retail sales monitoring service for the U.S. book industry), "Blinking With Fists" was also the #1 best-selling poetry book in the United States in its first week of release and has occupied the top spot for three out of the five weeks for which it has been on sale.

We couldn't be more thrilled to achieve an instant sales reaction to the release of this book," states Jeff Seroy, Senior VP of Publicity and Marketing for publisher Faber and Faber. "We hoped Billy's very dedicated fans would come out, and they did."
