The Book Nut, Episode Two

Hosted by Tehani Wessely

Guest Tansy Rayner Roberts

Recorded Monday 3 October 2011

Feedback from Thoraiya Dyer

In this episode, Tansy and I discussed spec fic for children and young adults and why we think SF is a good addition to any library or family collection.

Tansy wrote a blog post for the Locus Round Table on science fiction for children – well worth reading!

Books and authors we talked about:

Tiny Titans comics

L Frank Baum

E Nesbit

Edward EagerHalf Magic

Diana Wynne Jones

Troubletwisters by Garth Nix and Sean Williams

Keys to the Kingdom series by Garth Nix

Harry Potter series by JK Rowling

The Chronicles of Narnia by CS Lewis

Enid Blyton’s The Faraway Tree books

Through the Looking Glass, and what Alice found there by Lewis Carroll

Runaways (Marvel Comics)

The Ultimate Spider-Man (Marvel Comics)

The Shattering by Karen Healey

Red Glove (and White Cat) by Holly Black

The Demon’s Lexicon trilogy by Sarah Rees Brennan

Across the Universe by Beth Revis

Gillian Rubenstein’s books, such as Space Demons and Beyond the Labyrinth

And a new duology we’re rather excited about: Team Human, forthcoming from Sarah Rees Brennan and Justine Larbalestier.

Tehani semi-regularly updates her page of recommendations of spec fic for school libraries, which might be of interest.
