This week's round-up of middle grade fantasy and science fiction from around the blogs (8/26/16)

Two news items first--

Apply to be a Cybils Judge!  If you are wondering what it's all about (with reference to MG Spec Fic) here's the post I wrote last year.  If you love MG Spec Fic, don't be shy, apply! (and isn't that a nice rhyme....)

Also, Kidlitcon is coming in October in Wichita, and the program (organized by me) is now up!  Please come.
