    UNP - Nebraska 2012; US$ 60.00

    While some cultural critics are pronouncing the death of the novel, a whole generation of novelists have turned to other media with curiosity rather than fear.

    McFarland & Company, Inc., Publishers 2013; US$ 45.00

    Life magazine described the Shaver Mystery as "the most celebrated rumpus that rocked the science fiction world." Its creators said it was a "new wave in science fiction."

  • Contemporary Dystopian Fiction for Young Adultsby Carrie Hintz; Balaka Basu; Katherine R. Broad

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 125.00

    This collection enacts a lively debate about the goals and efficacy of YA dystopias, with three major areas of contention: do these texts reinscribe an old didacticism or offer an exciting new frontier in children's literature?
