What does YA SF Need?

I need your insights! (In 20 days I’ll present at WorldCon 75 in Helsinki, Finland). My topic: Young-adult science fiction.

  • What are some of your all-time favourite SF books–that are either readable for YA (ages 12+) or could reasonably fit into the YA category?
  • What do you wish publishers/writers/literary agents would consider for YA SF?
  • What types of characters and futures do you think are currently missing from the YA SF diaspora?

All comments entered into random drawing for the following: a free copy of one of my SF short stories or the first chapter of one of my books (your pick!) Three winners will be chosen. Deadline for insights: July 31st @ 10.00am (Munich, DE time zone).
