The entire collection is paced well, organized so that it starts light with Neil Gaiman‘s “How to Talk to Girls at Parties,” a story about two friends happening upon a different kind of foreign exchange party. And while I thought the first half of the collection was a bit packed with darker, more serious stories, the second half had me smiling again. And ending with “I Never” by Cassandra Clare brought the whole package back to where it began, with two friends at a very strange party.
And in the end I believe that the collection succeeds at showcasing the strengths of young adult science fiction by revealing the incredible diversity of voices present in the genre. Regardless of what flavor science fiction you have a hunger for, Futuredaze 2 satisfies, and might just offer up a few tastes and stories you never knew you were craving.
Thank you so much Tangent Online!!!
