Year’s Best YA Speculative Fiction 2014

Julia Rios et al.

Fans of Kaleidoscope will find more tales of wonder, adventure, diversity, and variety in this collection devoted to stories with teen protagonists.

Our goal is to uncover the best young adult short fiction of the year 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 bring them together in one accessible collection.

Teaching Notes are available for this title. To find out more, please visit the Kaleidoscope imprint Teaching Materials page. This page is designed to support the use of stories in classrooms. We invite and welcome submissions by anyone who has used these stories in an educational context, in the spirit of collaboration.
