Teen Literature Event: Futuredaze Reading at Spirit of ’76 Bookstore

Futuredaze-cover-hi-resSpecial Event featuring Science Fiction for Young Adults

Join us at Spirit of ’76 Books for a fun filled event in which teens read excerpts of science fiction short stories and poetry from Futuredaze! A reception and book signing will follow with Marblehead resident Erin Underwood, the anthology’s co-editor and publisher.

“Futuredaze is a fantastic choice for YA (and older) readers who enjoy science fiction and fantasy.” –ForeWords Reviews

“This is a great anthology, offering some of the strongest YA fiction I’ve seen in years. There’s something for everyone here, and not just young adults, but the not-so-young adults too.” Tangent Online

Futuredaze: An Anthology of YA Science Fiction includes 33 original short stories and poems that spark the imagination, twist the heart, and make us yearn for the possibilities of a world yet to come. Reflecting many of the ideals first set forth by science fiction icons such as Isaac Asimov, George Orwell, and Ray 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 “What if?”
