Visions

Donald R. Gallo, Editor Delacorte Press Books for Young Readers $16.95 (228p) ISBN 978-0-385-29588-8
An exciting collection of 19 never-before-published short stories by such renowned writers as M. E. Kerr, Joan Aiken, Richard Peck, Walter Dean Myers and Susan Beth Pfeffer. The appeal of this collection lies in the variety of its themes, moods and and cultural contexts. Themes range from ghosts and heroism, to love and familial relationships; from running away to growing up and looking to the future; from physical abuse to research in space. Each story's mood is distinct, lively and tersely depicted; readers will relish gliding from one writer's world into the next. The diverse selections are combined beautifully into a thought-provoking and enlightening collection of high literary quality. Each selection is enhanced by a short biography of the author that lists past and most recent works. Ages 12-up. (November)
