Cybils F/SF weekly wrapup: 12/17/06 - 12/24/06

With only a few days to go, the fantasy and science fiction nominating committee is making good progress. We started with 28 books on our shortlist, and we’ve pruned that down to 15. The last part is going to be the hardest, though; we each have our favorite books that we’re unwilling to sacrifice, and things may get bloody before we’re done!

The following books have been reviewed by members of the fantasy and science fiction committees in the week between December 17 and December 24:

  • Beka Cooper: Terrier by Tamora Pierce: reviewed by Gail | Michele | Kim
  • The Extraordinary and Unusual Adventures of Horatio Lyle by Catherine Webb: reviewed by Gail
  • The Eye Pocket: The Fantastic Society of Peculiar Adventurers by E J Crow: reviewed by Michele
  • Gossamer by Lois Lowry: reviewed by Michele
  • The Looking Glass Wars by Frank Beddor: reviewed by Kim
  • Ptolemy’s Gate by Jonathan Stroud: reviewed by Gail
  • Pucker by Melanie Gideon: reviewed by Michele
  • Sir Thursday by Garth Nix: reviewed by Gail | Kim
  • The Softwire: Virus on Orbis 1 by P J Haarsma: reviewed by Michele
