Cybils F/SF weekly wrapup: 11/12/06 - 11/19/06

The fantasy and science fiction nominating committee has been reading like crazy trying to get through all your nominations! We're up to 79 nominees so far. I'm really fortunate to work with such great people on the F/SF nominating committee. We're not reviewing every book we read; there's just too many nominees for that. But we have managed to review a number of books we felt were deserving of mention:

  • Beka Cooper: Terrier by Tamora Pierce: reviewed by Sheila
  • The Book of Story Beginnings by Kristine Kladstrup: reviewed by Michele
  • Gilda Joyce and the Ladies of the Lake by Jennifer Allison: reviewed by Gail
  • Gossamer by Lois Lowry: reviewed by Gail
  • Horns and Wrinkles by Joseph Helgerson: reviewed by Michele
  • Larklight by Philip Reeve: reviewed by Gail
  • Life as We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer: reviewed by Kim and Michele
  • Monster Blood Tattoo by D. M. Cornish: reviewed by Erin
  • Pucker by Melanie Gideon: reviewed by Gail
  • The Shadow Thieves by Anne Ursu: reviewed by Gail

I'd also like to thank the following publishers for generously providing review copies to make it easier for us to evaluate the nominees:

Abrams Books for Young Readers
Candlewick Press
Carolrhoda Books
Flux Books
Harcourt Children's Books
Houghton Mifflin
Idylls Press
