In this issue's column, I cover the following books:
Uninvited, by Amanda Marrone
Starcross, by Philip Reeve
Unwind, by Neal Shusterman
Peter and the Secret of Rundoon, by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson
Alcatraz Versus the Evil Librarians, by Brandon Sanderson
The Tapestry: The Hound of Rowan, by Henry Neff
Extras, by Scott Westerfeld
The Red Queen's Daughter, by Jacqueline Kosolov
Fiction in this issue is by Delia Sherman, Ken Scholes, Richard Parks, Graham Edwards, and Scott William Carter. I haven't read any of these stories yet, but I'm looking forward to all of them, especially the Graham Edwards, as I get a real kick out of his nameless detective stories.
Cover story is on the Spiderwick Chronicles film adaptation.
The Folkroots column this month by Midori Snyder, and covers the myth of the swan maiden.
