This anthology of stories about the future, edited by Sylvia Engdahl, is intended for teens who don't ordinarily read science fiction rather than for SF fans, and is not meant to be an introduction to that genre. It focuses on the timeless aspects of being human, and aims to suggest ideas about the future in a way that those who prefer real-life settings to strange, "far-out" ones will enjoy. Contributors include Sylvia Engdahl, Shirley Rousseau Murphy, Carol Farley, Rick Roberson, Robert Pierik, and Mildred Butler, all of whom are established authors of children's or Young Adult fiction.
The Kindle edition (but not the hardcover edition) contains two stories from Engdahl and Roberson's previous anthology "Universe Ahead," one of which is by Engdahl, plus a previously-unpublished story by Engdahl.
