This is a pretty good anthology of YA science fiction stories. Most of them were pretty good, especially the first three. Incarnation Day was also very interesting, and while I'd read it before, it was fun to read it again. The Orson Scott Card story feels kinda out of place in that it deals with travel between universes rather than travel in space. It's also the exact same thing as the version published as a separate book, minus illustrations. The only story I didn't like was the Joe Haldeman s ...more

Another young adult anthology, edited by the same folks who did Wizards: Magical Tales From the Masters of Modern Fantasy, only with a broad theme of travel in space. (I don't ordinarily read "young adult" fiction, nor was I aware of how well-defined this category has become, but these two books were selected by my club.)

This is a superior anthology of youth-oriented stories. The title story is an excellent work by Allen Steele, and I was also quite taken by excellent stories by Elizabeth Moon, Kage Baker, and Geoffrey Landis. The last story in the book is actually the first section of a novel by Joe Haldeman.

I enjoyed this book, for the most part. There were several stories that didn't do much for me, but a couple that did a lot: one by Joe Haldeman and the other by Elizabeth Moon, both at the back of the book, so I'm glad I made it through to the end.

This was a fun little read of several Science Fiction authors' short stories. It's written for teens, yet has that hard-sci-fi feel, with most of the adventures taking place in our solar system.
