Other Good Stuff
The World Science Fiction Society (WSFS), coordinator of the World Science Fiction Convention (WorldCon) has given first approval to a new Young Adult Science / Fantasy Award, and now it needs a name! Make your suggestion here at the name-the-award-survey by November 15th. I'm thinking "The Blue Sword." Or possibly "The Tesseract."
"Why Science Fiction is Important" at Got My Book
And just a post-election shout-out to a local organization--Books are Wings--whose mission is to get books to kids who need them. Which is even more important now.
