Product Details


A diverse anthology showing hopeful futures imagined through the lens of technology. . . . celebrates queerness, a variety of gender identities, and the freedom to be oneself, delving into how technology can influence and transform reality as well as be used for the greater good—or to oppress. . . . A top-notch hard science fiction collection.
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Dazzling . . . explores emerging innovative technology to imagine expansive futures. . . . Podcast scripts, pen pal letters, and a b&w comic, illustrated via gentle line, are a few of the vehicles used to render these moving tales. The creators seamlessly tackle relevant issues such as colonization, misogyny, transphobia, and white entitlement in this eclectic celebration of infinite possibility and the ever-present human spirit.
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

The 10 short stories in this luminous collection are set in the future in different locations. . . At once unsettling and moving, this crystalline collection will find or create a connection with its readers.

This collection of innovative YA hard science fiction short stories thoughtfully reimagines a gender-diverse future from an array of perspectives. . . . Each story is unique, brilliant, and brimming with hope.

It’s been a while since we had a full YA collection of only science fiction, but who better to bring it back than Capetta and Roush. They’ve put together a fine array of stories blending queerness and technology.

Tasting Light explores everyday coming-of-age issues but throws in speculative curveballs. . . a great intro to a really diverse group of young adult authors!
