About the Book

Futuredaze includes 33 original short stories and poems that spark the imagination, twist the heart, and makeyou yearn for the possibilities of a world yet to come.

KristinAnderson, Alex Dally MacFarlane, Jenny Blackford, and many more!


Reflecting many of the ideals first set forth by such science fiction icons as Isaac Asimov, George Orwell, andRay Bradbury, Futuredaze challenges the imagination with young adult fiction that includes far-flung futures, dystopian alternate worlds, life among the stars, and a host of startling stories that embrace the idea of “Whatif?” that has driven the science fiction genre forward for more then a century. Now it’s time to give voice to thenext generation of science fiction readers and to those of us still young at heart.
