Futuredaze 2: High School Library Giveaway x 10

Underwords Press is giving away Futuredaze 2: Reprise to 10 different high school libraries anywhere in the U.S.

FD2RepriseWhen I was a teenager, my high school library was a refuge, filled with books that contained doorways to thousands of worlds. However, with all of the budget cuts that schools have suffered lately, their libraries are now struggling to make ends meet. So, in honor of the mysterious high school librarian at my former high school (Kelseyville High School), Underwords Press is holding a contest to give away a copy of Futuredaze 2: Reprise to 10 high school libraries within the U.S. The instructions for entering the contest are written below. The contest is open until Saturday, September 20, 2014 at midnight in Hawaii.

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!

Includes Stories by:
Paolo Bacigalupi * Libba Bray * Cassandra Clare * Neil Gaiman
