Since the TOC is out, I can now announce the good news that my little story, “Dan’s Dreams“, is included in The Year’s Best YA Speculative Fiction 2013 edited by Alisa Krasnostein and Julia Rios. I am very excited about this, because my story will appear alongside stories by writers I admire, among them Sofia Samatar, Lavie Tidhar, Ken Liu, and Neil Gaiman.
My thanks to Alisa and Julia, and my gratitude as well to Dean Francis Alfar, Kenneth Yu, and the University of the Philippines Press, who first gave the story a home in the local anthology Horror: Filipino Fiction for Young Adults.
Coming late 2014
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.
