Subterranean Press has announced three new limited editions (each with YA aspects) to be released this summer by David Brin, Orson Scott Card, and Connie Willis.

Sky Horizon
by David Brin

Approximate length: 125 pages
Illustrated by Scott Hampton

“Some of the Math Club nerds have got a real live alien! They’re hiding it in a basement rec room.” High School junior Mark Bamford didn’t believe the silly rumor. For one thing, California homes don’t have basements. Besides. A stranded alien? Only … was it a hoax? What about all those black vans from the super-secret Cirrocco Corp cruising all over town, as if searching for something? Sky Horizon explores a possibility that has always fascinated, since the days of Homer — that of strangers from beyond — and gives it new shape under the deft hand of one of science fiction’s modern masters. Limited: 1500 signed numbered copies: $35.  Lettered 26 signed leatherbound copies, housed in a custom traycase: $150

The Space Boy
by Orson Scott Card

Approximate Length: 125 pages
Illustrated by Lance Card

Is it space that children dream of, or merely visiting other worlds? Todd had always set his heart on being an astronaut, but when he meets an alien and travels to another world, he doesn’t use a spaceship, he just hangs out in his own back yard. In Space Boy, Orson Scott Card, author of Ender’s Game, takes readers into a strange and wonderful future, where people from another world regularly visit Earth – usually without being noticed. And when humans travel to their world, they find themselves dangerously weak and powerless. Until Todd finds a way to set both worlds to rights. By turns funny and painful, Space Boy is Card at his best, exploring human nature for the entertainment of readers young and old. Limited: 2000 signed numbered hardcovers: $35. Lettered: 26 signed leatherbound copies, housed in a custom traycase: $150

by Connie Willis

Approximate Length: 80 pages
Illustrated by J.K. Potter

Theodora Baumgarten has just been selected as an IASA space cadet, and therein lies the problem. She didn’t apply for the ultra-coveted posting, and doesn’t relish spending years aboard the ship to which she’s been assigned. But the plucky young heroine, in true Heinlein fashion, has no plans to go along with the program. Aided by her hacker best friend Kimkim, in a screwball comedy that has become Connie Wills’ hallmark, Theodora will stop at nothing to uncover the conspiracy that has her shanghaied. Limited: 400 signed numbered leatherbound copies: $45. Trade: fully cloth bound hardcover: $20
