  1. Elizabeth, a.k.a. source of all television knowledge says:

    >Yes, Heroes will be back in fall ’08. It’s popular with a lot of children’s lit people, including Ginee Seo.

  2. Roger Sutton says:

    >Let’s hope that their first mission is rescuing Tim and Heidi from LOS ANGELES.

  3. Anonymous says:

    >didn’t ever think i’d be saying this, but that’s a bit of a blah list. is that really it for heroes?

  4. Michael says:

    >Also, it gets wrong the name of the illustrators for NEW YORK’S BRAVEST: None other than Steve Johnson & Lou Fancher.

  5. Kristen F says:

    >I feel like I’m beating a dead horse here, but I added some book covers & links to the heroes post, just to show you how your well-researched lists can be made a little more interactive & visually interesting. I’ll stop now.

  6. Roger Sutton says:

    >That’s an interesting idea, Kristen, but I’m not sure about pushing readers off of our website onto publishers’ pages. But the bottom line is that if we had to design anything beyond a basic annotated list, we wouldn’t be able to get them into the website schedule at all. There’s always a tradeoff!
