TOC for new YA anthology Life on Mars: Tales from New Frontiers

Australian editor Jonathan Strahan has announced the table of contents for Life on Mars: Tales from New Frontiers, a new Young Adult science fiction anthology of futuristic stories that "takes as its leaping off point that we do go to Mars in 2040”:

“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 (novella)
“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 authors! Let's hope the cover, which has not yet been revealed, looks as good!

Life on Mars: Tales from New Frontiers is being published by Viking and, according to Amazon, is scheduled to be released in April 2011. Meanwhile, listen to Cory Doctorow read a working draft of his novella “Martian Chronicles,” which he deposited in the Internet Archive several months ago.
