School Library Journal has the news of William Sleator’s death in Thailand at age 66. He was the prolific author of over 30 books for all ages.
I have two favorite Sleator books. As different as can be.
Interstellar Pig is one of those books that you can hand to reluctant readers who enjoy science fiction. It also book talks beautifully thanks to its great premise of a board game that is actually a battle for the survival of the human race.
Oddballs is a short story collection. But what stories! Weird, funny and completely great.
