This week's roundup of middle grade fantasy and science fiction from around the blogs (11/16/14)

The good part about being the first one up is the peaceful house; the bad part is that there is never a roaring fire and toasty warm house waiting for me.  Today was the first day this fall when my hands were almost too cold to type...but I bravely persevered.

Please let me know if I missed your post!
