2015 Young Explorer’s Adventure Guide
A science fiction anthology of stories written for a middle grade audience, with a focus on diversity and representation. 20 stories from amazing authors, ranging from Nebula and Hugo winners to relative newcomers to the field. 90% of the stories in the anthology are brand new, and 80% have central female characters. We don’t have girls who are prizes to be won or waiting to be rescued. All of our heroines and heroes are on their own adventure, not a side note in someone else’s. Our characters are white, black, asian, latino. Human and robot. Everyone belongs here.

Awesome, I've been meaning to ask you how this was going. Is this available to (pre)order, or is the book in pre-pre-order status?

Pre-orders will be starting next wednesday - thanks! It's actually been going really well. The whole thing has been much more complicated than I initially anticipated, but I'm still in love with the idea, so I figure it's been worthwhile.

I just got the email that the Kickestarter has re-kicked off, for anyone who might be looking to post this project.
