I'm sad to say I've read none of the books on the list, though I have at least read something at one time or another by 90% of the authors. I've been meaning to get a copy of New Skies, but will probably wait for it in paperback. In any case, I applaud Patrick Nielsen Hayden for editing an anthology aimed at younger readers, a group I recently championed.

By the way, does anyone know if there are any anthologies of original science fiction aimed at young adults (or even elementary schoolers)? Are any in the works?
