Looking for some good Sci-Fi/Fantasy?

The Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America have just announced the 2010 Nebula Award nominees. There's a category dedicated to YA novels, so why not check out a few of the nominees? Links to the books in our catalog, where available, are below. I've read SHIP BREAKER and WHITE CAT -- both are awesome.

SHIP BREAKER by Paolo Bacigalupi**
