Scott Westerfeld-a-mania

If you're not already following the man on Twitter, then you may have missed the super exciting announcement he just made... Scott Westerfeld has finished the manuscript for GOLIATH, the final book of his Leviathan Trilogy (Book 1: Leviathan, Book 2: Behemoth). And not only is the book finished, but it's going to be released more than a month earlier than previously anticipated, on September 13th, 2011! So if you haven't started this uber-cool steam punk retelling of WWI pick it up now... and lucky you, you won't have to wait for the thrilling conclusion for a year like the rest of us have! For ages 10 and up.
