Discover the Wonder!

Tesseracts Fifteen: A Case of Quite Curious Tales edited by Julie Czerneda and Susan MacGregor is the only volume in the long running Tesseracts series that is themed specifically for young adults and the young at heart. These stories are filled with “wonder and astonishment,” say the editors. They are “stories that engage the imagination, inspire dreams, and leave hope in their wake.
