Classics of YA Genre Fiction

Postby PMaranci » Fri Aug 21, 2015 8:25 pm

With the overflow of new genre fiction being pumped out for the young adult market these days, many classics are being forgotten or have fallen out of print. New print copies of many Heinlein juveniles are nearly impossible to find these days - who would have thought it? And what about other, older books? Some have had their plots and characters cannibalized by newer authors, but is a regurgitated plot necessarily a better plot? We'll share the forgotten treasures of young adult fantasy and science fiction.

Bumping to submit for 2016. Just to be clear, I am NOT suggesting this for Fast Track - panels don't work there. But from long experience with panels of this sort at Arisia, I know that there are many adults who are very interested in this topic.
