As the Cybil Gains In Strength

Looks like we're beginning to hit the big-time, baby.
GalleyCat has posted info about the Cybils. Of course, they call it "A New YA Prize" which it is most certainly not (or at least, not exclusively), but we'll take what crumbs we can get.

Well GalleyCat seems to have amended its web site. It says "...bloggers who focus on YA and children's literature" have created the new award, in 7 categories. That's accurate.

But this brings up a beef of mine: the Chicago Tribune has a (4 year-old) literary prize they call The Chicago Tribune Young Adult Book Prize, and as far as I can tell they've given it to middle grade novels since its inception. The description of the award says, "books written for readers between the ages of 12 and 18," and this year Kate DiCamillo won.

Yeah, but the title is still, "Litblogosphere Creates A New YA Prize", which chaps my hide.
