This week's round-up of middle grade fantasy and science fiction (10/12/14)

Greetings from Sacramento!  I am here for Kidlitcon, now over for another year, and have to check out of my hotel room in just a few minutes, so this is not as complete a list as I would have liked to offer....so let me know if I missed your post!

And please keep nominating books for the Cybils!   There will be a round up of lists of un-nominated books at the Cybils site on Monday for your nominating convenience.
