The League of Extraordinary Writers

So you may be wondering what the heck this ‘League of Extraordinary Writers’ is, well it’s a group of debut YA authors who write science fiction and dystopian works (which I am a big fan of). Each of the authors have works that run the gamut of near-future mind control to far-future space travel, but they do have one thing in common: a future where the Earth we know now is twisted, gone.

League Members

Jeff Hirsch, author of THE ELEVENTH PLAGUE, about a 15 year old scavenger coming of age after a nearly apocalyptic war. (Scholastic, Summer/Fall 2011)

Elana Johnson, author of POSSESSION, where one rebel fifteen-year-old tries to fight her brainwashing government. (Simon & Schuster, Summer 2011)

Julia Karr, author of XVI, a novel set in the year 2150, where turning sixteen is anything but sweet. (Puffin/Speak, Spring 2011)

Beth Revis, author of ACROSS THE UNIVERSE, a murder mystery set in space. (Razorbill/Penguin, Spring 2011)

Angie Smibert whose novel MEMENTO NORA is about a teenage girl’s struggle to hold on to her memories—and her identity—in a world that finds it far more lucrative for everyone to forget—and keep on shopping. (Marshall Cavendish, April 2011)
