This came from a Tolkien mailing list by way of Reading For the Future, an
organization founded by the "Killer B's" (David Brin, Greg Bear, and Gregory
Benford) (I think Benford is the third) designed to promote the reading of
speculative fiction among children and young adults.  Get them while they're
young, I always say.  :)  Has anyone in the UK heard anything about this?
Since they're calling for papers right now, they might not be publicizing it

yet.  But don't I wish I lived in England right now.  (I usually do wish
this.  Just some times more than others.)
