YA Sci-fi Authors


Good morning, space cadets, and welcome to the Intergalactic Academy’s first Long Range Scan, where we preview what’s on our course schedule in the coming month. Keep in mind that our content is subject to change, depending on atmospheric scannings and solar flares–but this is what we’re looking forward to for June. Week 1 On June 1st, I’ll be kicking things off with a review of […] More »


WHAT IS OLDEST WILL BE NEW, WHAT IS LOST SHALL BE FOUND. The ozone is ravaged, ocean levels have risen, and the sun is a daily enemy. But global climate change is not something new in the Earth’s history. No one will know this better than less-than-ordinary Owen Parker, who is about to discover that he is the descendant of a highly advanced ancient race—a race […] More »


It’s the end of the world. Six students have taken cover in Cortege High but shelter is little comfort when the dead outside won’t stop pounding on the doors. One bite is all it takes to kill a person and bring them back as a monstrous version of their former self. To Sloane Price, that doesn’t sound so bad. Six months ago, her world collapsed and since then, […] More »

"Ahead of its time since 1979!"

I’m back, and I’m as anal-retentive about science fiction as ever! Space is the final frontier a popular setting for SF, with good reason. Now that James Cameron has been to the bottom of the ocean, space is the only setting where we could run in to alien artifacts or extinct civilizations or giant crystalline computers housing sentient AIs but then the twist at the end […] More »

Rachel's most fearsome morph yet!

If this is your first time dipping into the Animorphs Re-Read, I strongly suggest you head back to the beginning and start there unless you’re already familiar with the books. Alternatively, check out our new and improved Animorphs Re-Read index for a list of every post in the series. I believe we were 2/3 of the way through the ‘David Trilogy’ when I decided to take a break and do…something. […] More »


Stranded aliens seek out Earth’s most intelligent species. (Hint: It’s not us.) A bully discovers the meaning of “spatial displacement.” Two girls find out why you should never annoy a witch. When a swarm of sneaking, slashing, scurrying ninja weenies invades their neighborhood, a boy and his best friend find a way to fight back. Acclaimed author and master of the macabre David Lubar is back […] More »


For thirty-five girls, the Selection is the chance of a lifetime. The opportunity to escape the life laid out for them since birth. To be swept up in a world of glittering gowns and priceless jewels. To live in the palace and compete for the heart of the gorgeous Prince Maxon. But for America Singer, being Selected is a nightmare. It means turning her back on […] More »


Incapable. Awkward. Artless. That’s what the other girls whisper behind her back. But sixteen year-old Adelice Lewys has a secret: she wants to fail. Gifted with the ability to weave time with matter, she’s exactly what the Guild is looking for, and in the world of Arras, being chosen as a Spinster is everything a girl could want. It means privilege, eternal beauty, and being something […] More »

This post brought to you in conjunction with Phoebe, who is both a YA author and a moon of Saturn.

My name is Sean Wills, and I’m here to convince you to set your next YA science fiction novel somewhere other than Earth! By the time I’m finished, you’ll see the value in choosing an extra-terrestrial planet, moon, orbital colony or generation ship as the setting for your magnum opus. I can see that you’re skeptical, and with good reason! Earth is the default milieu for all […] More »


Preliminary Scan: Aiden Nomura likes to open doors—especially using his skills as a hacker—to see what’s hidden inside. He believes everything is part of a greater system: the universe. The universe shows him the doors, and he keeps pulling until one cracks open. Aiden exposes the flaw, and the universe—or someone else—will fix it. It’s like a game. Until it isn’t. When a TFC opens in […] More »
