All of the stories are refreshingly short, 10 pages or fewer, encouraging readers to read the next and the next until the book is gobbled down. Fun for fans familiar with adult SF, and an enticing gateway for those new to the genre.
Futuredaze is a fantastic choice for YA (and older) readers who enjoy science fiction and fantasy. Of interest and possible inspiration to young writers is the fact that many of the authors featured in this anthology are themselves quite young.
This is a great anthology, offering some of the strongest YA fiction I've seen in years.
