Reviews of Kaleidoscope:

“This anthology is perfect for teens who are interested in science fiction and fantasy — but who don’t want just stories about white, straight, able-bodied rich kids and their vampire problems.” – NPR

“Kaleidoscope offers a wild ride to places both enticingly new and comfortingly familiar, and it’s a great addition to the worlds of both YA and SFF.” – Big Blue Marble Books

“This anthology is truly kaleidoscopic and absolutely recommended.” – Kirkus

“Young men from all backgrounds will find something that speaks to them in the pages of this important, amazing collection, although I’d wager that young men who aren’t white and straight will draw even more strength and power from its marvelous stories. Highly Recommended.” – Guys Lit Wire

“Perhaps the best part about this Kaleidoscope is how genuinely entertaining these stories are. Editors Alisa Krasnostein and Julia Rios did an excellent job of curating this anthology. There are dystopian societies, time-travelling, parallel universes, superheroes, mythology tie-ins, aliens, and more. Chances are, if you’re at all interested in SFF, you’ll find a story in here that you’ll love.” – Rich in Colour

“… if you’re interested in an introduction to diverse YA and how it can be done, this is a great place to start, given the range of stories and settings that offer up so many different ways to see how it’s done, and how it could be.” – this ain’t livin’
