Twelfth Planet Press LogoLast week Twelfth Planet Press announced their table of contents for the Year’s Best YA Speculative Fiction 2013 edited by Julia Rios and Alisa Krasnostein. I would have shared this sooner, but had some internet-y troubles. It’s definitely one worth sharing all the same. I’ve read a number of these stories from their original publications and enjoyed all of them. If those stories are a reflection on the quality of the rest of the anthology, this is going to be a great read with a lot of inclusive content and diverse characters.

Year’s Best YA Speculative Fiction 2013 is coming out late 2014 and will be available for preorder soon.

Here’s what Twelfth Planet Press has to say about their upcoming anthology:

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.

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