Cybils Staff Publishing News!

Our own Gina Ruiz, former Cybils Social Media Guru and MG/YA Nonfiction category organizer, tipped us off to some most excellent news: she has a short story included in the newly-released (for grown-ups) anthology ¡Ban This! The BSP Anthology of Xican@ Literature.

BanThisGina says, "I am completely blown away to be in a book with Luis Urrea and Rodolfo Acuna," and we're sure that their stories are fabulous, but I for one can't wait to read Gina's in particular, which is entitled "Cholos, Chanclas and Aliens." The author describes the story as follows: "Basically, the aliens land in a park usually inhabited by cholos, who end up killing the aliens, saving the world (with Aquanet) and getting deported for their trouble."

How could you NOT want to read it?
