Some Sci-Fi Fantasy News

We don't sell TONS of science fiction/fantasy literature, but we do have some steady readers and steady
sellers in these areas. Much of what we sell falls into the young adult category. The finalists for this year's Nebula Awards were recently announced, and here are the finalists in the YA category:

Andre Norton Award for Young Adult Science Fiction and Fantasy:
  • Ship Breaker, Paolo Bacigalupi (Little, Brown)
  •  White Cat, Holly Black (McElderry)
  • Mockingjay, Suzanne Collins (Scholastic Press; Scholastic UK)
  •  Hereville: How Mirka Got Her Sword, Barry Deutsch (Amulet)
  • The Boy from Ilysies, Pearl North (Tor Teen)
  • I Shall Wear Midnight, Terry Pratchett (Gollancz; Harper)
  • A Conspiracy of Kings, Megan Whalen Turner (Greenwillow)
  • Behemoth, Scott Westerfeld (Simon Pulse; Simon & Schuster UK)

The awards will be presented in a ceremony on Saturday, May 21st, in Washington, DC. To learn more about the awards and about the finalists in the other categories, visit the Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America page about the Nebula Awards weekend. 
And while I'm on the topic of SciFi, I'm thrilled to report that we will finally see Book 2 in the series by Patrick Rothfuss, following the very popular book The Name of the Wind. The Wise Man's Fear, Book 2 in the Kingkiller Chronicles, will be published next week in hardcover ($29.95). If you want us to reserve a copy for you, just let us know.
