On the lack of YA science fiction and science fiction readers

http://sartorias.livejournal.com/180716.html

I've been wondering why, while there's plenty of YA fantasy, some of it excellent, there doesn't seem to be much YA science fiction. sartorius has a substantial discussion, with some unnerving bits. Much as I love science fiction, I think that young people seeing nothing interesting or exhilerating about the future is even more serious than a print science fiction shortage. I hope they're getting their hope for the future from other media, but I'm not counting on it.
