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.
