Please excuse any duplications.  I sent this list yesterday and saw that it
wasn't available on the list.  This could be "me" or it could be the
"list"...either way, if you get this twice, delete the one you don't need.

I originally said:

Well, I guess I wasn't as "out-of-date" in this area as I thought.  These
are the suggestions that I received for these genres.  I'm grouping them by
the ones that I already own (have read, and kids love) and then the "newer
ones" or titles that I haven't heard about that you might want to add too!

Here's a link to Science Fiction / Fantasy / Horror books (new and
forthcoming) that was sent to me:  It looks
like a great reference source for upcoming SciFi / Fantasy

Thanks to everyone who sent information.  If I get additional information
that isn't a duplicate, I will forward it to the list.
