Futuredaze 2: Reprise: Fifteen of the best and most brilliant young adult science fiction stories, written by the hottest SF and YA authors, are gathered for the first time in one anthology. Wild-west steampunk, true love with the alien next door, a confab with Mr. Darcy’s avatar, musical fluted girls, and Dorothy in alt-China—this is not your mom and dad’s science fiction. Grab a friend and go for launch to worlds of wonder that reveal who we are and what we want to become through our decisions, relationships, and the chances we take on our futures—across all universes!

Excellent Review for Futuredaze 2: Reprise from Foreword Reviews

Foreword Reviews Fall 2014 CoverWe just received a really great review from Foreword Reviews, which is included in their Fall 2014 issue. Thank you Foreword Reviews!

The entire review is so complementary that I couldn’t just pick one thing to share here. So, I’m including a few different snippets for you to enjoy:

“Thoughtfully organized to maximize enjoyment, this sci-fi collection introduces YA readers to exciting subgenres and authors….Underwood and Holder follow up Futuredaze, their collection of original science-fiction stories and poetry, with this sequel featuring fifteen previously published stories by well-known YA authors like Scott Westerfeld and Cassandra Clare….The editors’ respect for their teen audience is apparent and adds to the appeal of the collection. The previously mentioned stories, like all of the others chosen for this book, incorporate issues of identity, independence, and relationships that are hallmarks of YA literature….At just under 300 pages, the length provides a nice taste of some of the best science-fiction writing for teens without being overwhelmingly long.” — Carolyn Bailey
