Amazing Stories Magazine published a thoughtful review of Futuredaze 2: Reprise. What makes this review so interesting is the reviewer’s additional commentary on young adult fiction within the speculative fiction genre, which he weaves into his review of the anthology as a whole. It was rewarding to see that Futuredaze 2: Reprise generated such a thoughtful review that addressed more than just the stories he was reading. Thank you Amazing Stories Magazine!
Here is a short excerpt from the review:
“The congruity between the two categories [adult and young adult] would suggest that books designated as “young adult” should be reviewed with the same criteria as books for adults. FutureDaze2: Reprise, an anthology of young adult science fiction edited by Erin Underwood and Nancy Holder validates this approach: it’s great reading no matter what age group the reader belongs to.” — Amazing Stories Magazine, Ira Nayman
