message 1: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Arcade and Little Brother are not children's fiction. Should they be removed?


message 2: by Phillip (new)

Phillip Edwards I remember them as being young adult sci-fi, as specified in the list description but, hey, I can tell when I'm not wanted.


message 3: by Cheryl (new)

Cheryl More William Sleator should be on this list.. unless he was actually writing mostly in the 90s? I don't have time to check now, sorry.


message 4: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Might be a good idea to create Children's Science Fiction of the 1990s?

That was right before the big dystopian craze took off.


message 5: by Cheryl (new)

Cheryl It absolutely would. I would def. contribute, but I'm not the right person to create it.
