MARBLEHEAD, Mass. (PRWEB) September 25, 2014
In a unique and highly-accessible new anthology, editors Erin Underwood and Nancy Holder compile works from today's top young adult and science fiction authors, bringing it to market as 'Futuredaze 2: Reprise.'
“Adult science fiction gets global attention, but short stories for young adults are often overlooked,” admits Underwood. “The fact is, very few YA science fiction anthologies have been published, leaving little room for 'best of' reprint anthologies like 'Futuredaze2: Reprise.'” Holder adds, “That’s why we rounded up these amazing authors, bringing them to the world in an anthology specifically designed for young adults.”
"...some of the best science-fiction writing for teens." — Foreword Reviews
“…the collection succeeds at showcasing the strengths of young adult science fiction by revealing the incredible diversity of voices present in the genre.” — Tangent Online
“Ambitious in scope and compulsively readable, these stories redefine the boundaries of science fiction." — Kami Garcia, #1 New York Times bestselling author of 'Unbreakable' and coauthor of 'Beautiful Creatures'
