New YA anthology Life on Mars: Tales from the New Frontier

Life on Mars: Tales from the New Frontier (Viking, April 2011), a new original Young Adult science fiction anthology edited by Jonathan Strahan, is now available for purchase at Amazon in traditional hardcover format or Kindle digital edition. Here’s the product description:

Mars! The Red Planet! For generations, people have wondered what it would be like to travel to and live there. That curiosity has inspired some of the most durable science fiction, including Ray Bradbury's The Martian Chronicles and the work of Isaac Asimov. Now the award-winning anthologist Jonathan Strahan has brought together thirteen original stories to explore the possibilities. After reading Life on Mars, readers will never look at the fourth planet from the sun the same way again.

And, here’s the table of contents:

“Attlee and the Long Walk" by Kage Baker
“The Old Man and the Martian Sea” by Alastair Reynolds
“Wahala” by Nnedi Okorafor
“On Chryse Plain” by Stephen Baxter
“First Principle” by Nancy Kress
“Martian Chronicles” by Cory Doctorow
“Goodnight Moons” by Ellen Klages
“The Taste of Promises” by Rachel Swirsky
“Digging” by Ian McDonald
“LARP on Mars” by Chris Roberson
“Martian Heart” by John Barnes
“Discovering Life” by Kim Stanley Robinson

Solid line-up of big-name authors! Cool cover art by French artist Stephan Martiniere! Purchased it for my Kindle yesterday! Can hardly wait to start reading it this weekend!
