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.) Of the two I thought this one was superior. The stories are longer, fewer, and better. They are written in frank imitation of the old science fiction "juveniles" by authors such as Heinlein. As such, they're fun, but definitely aimed at the adolescent reader.
