Discover the best young adult short fiction of the year originally published in the anthologies dedicated to the form, the occasional special edition of a magazine, and individual pieces appearing in otherwise adult anthologies and magazines, and brought together here in one accessible collection. Julia Rios and Alisa Krasnostein, the award winning editors of Kaleidoscope: Diverse YA Science Fiction and Fantasy Stories, have collected twenty-one of the best young adult speculative fiction short stories of 2013 from: Joanne Anderton, Steve Berman, Sarah Rees Brennan, Cecil Castellucci, Beth Cato, Joyce Chng, Leah Cypess, Neil Gaiman, Shane Halbach, Miri Kim, Ken Liu, Malinda Lo, Juliet Marillier, Alena McNamara, Sam J. Miller, Nnedi Okorafor, Tansy Rayner Roberts, Sofia Samatar, Angela Slatter, Lavie Tidhar, and Eliza Victoria. Praise for Kaleidoscope: "This anthology is perfect for teens who are interested in science fiction and fantasy-but who don't want just stories about white, straight, able-bodied rich kids and their vampire problems." - NPR "Kaleidoscope offers a wild ride to places both enticingly new and comfortingly familiar, and it's a great addition to the worlds of both YA and SFF." - Big Blue Marble Books "This anthology is truly kaleidoscopic and absolutely recommended." - Kirkus
