I'm not sure I'd make the claim about Numenera that this article does (perhaps +Monte Cook can comment) — I've seen him comment that his post-KS sales have been quite strong. What I don't know is if those are strong sales through direct channels, or through distro; I believe ICV2's perspective and rankings, for what they're worth, are based on retail and distro sales channels and don't take direct-from-publisher sales into account at all. (ICV2's methods for compiling that list are a bit obfuscated).
