I've been giving presentations on Sciency Fiction lately, and I've been asked to post a list of sciency fiction titles.
All titles are middle-grade, unless otherwise noted.
If the book is part of a series, only one book is mentioned, usually the first.
So here it is. I hope to keep it updated, and suggestions are welcome.
