Here is the list of the top 10 fiction and noir-fiction titles sold in Edmonton for the week ended May 13, 2018, compiled by Audreys Books and provided by the Book Publishers Association of Alberta.

Topping the fiction list that week was At This Juncture, by Alberta author Rona Altrows. No. 1 on the non-fiction list in the week ended May 6 was Journey Through Genocide: Stories of Survivors and the Dead, by Raffy Boudjikanian, also of Alberta.
