I'm trying to do the following query:

$db_connect = mysql_connect($sqlhostname,$login,$password);
$base_selection = mysql_select_db($base,$db_connect);
$query = "SELECT DISTINCT * FROM xp_topics WHERE artist_count='artist' AND topictext 
          'A%' ORDER BY artist_count ASC limit 0,5"; $req = mysql_query($query); 
          $res = mysql_num_rows($req); if ($res == 0)

     { echo "</p>
          <p><b>N/A</b>";} else { while($row = mysql_fetch_array($req))
$query2 = "SELECT SUM(1) FROM xp_stories,xp_topics WHERE xp_topics.topicid = 
xp_stories_topicid AND xp_topics.topictext = '$topictest'";
$numtopic = mysql_query($query2) or die("Select Failed!");
$numtopic = mysql_fetch_array($numtopic);
            { extract($row); echo ("$topictext $numtopic[0]<br>
            "); } } 

Which should return a name and then count how many topics by that person.

If I leave out the query2 statement I do get a list of name, but I can't get query2 to
