With stories by Keyan Bowes, Katharine Dow, Timothy Geigner, Liam Hogan, Christopher Alex Hooton, Andrew Dana Hudson, Randy Lubin, Mike Masnick, Ross Pruden, N. R. M. Roshak, Holly Schofield, and James Yu.
Gritty, graceful, commonsense or whimsical, these twenty tales probe at how we could build a working world using the resources available to us - the natural, the social, the political, and the technological.
Some of these stories invite readers to bask in the warmth of a bright tomorrow, from tree dwellings in India, to restoration projects in Milano, to rewilded suburbs in the East of Australia. Other stories burn with spirit in the face of adversity: smallholders in Botswana adjust to international treaties; gamers tackle reality using virtual tools. And there are shadows, too, in tech suburbs where you can buy eco-cigarettes, or on tree plantations where family members won't toe the line.

In these pages we explore future cities all over the world. In Nigeria, we see how students are making their cities smarter. In London, a charming AI wants to help you find love. In Australia, a drowned Dutch city finds a new home. And in California, charismatic cities don't need us to run them at all.
The future visions in this anthology come from nine of today's premiere science fiction writers and futurists. These examples are futurist storytelling at its finest, because they examine not only the technologies that will affect our future, but how people will learn and grow and interact with those technologies. Come, let's take a look at our future.
Climate change is no longer a vague future threat. Forests are burning, currents are shifting, and massive storms dump staggering amounts of water in less than 24 hours. Sometimes it’s hard to look ahead and see a hopeful future.
We asked sci-fi writers to send us stories about ways to save the world from climate change. From the myriad of stories we received, we chose the twenty most amazing (and hopefully prescient) tales.
Dive in and find out how we might mitigate climate change via solar mirrors, carbon capture, genetic manipulation, and acts of change both large and small.
The future’s not going to fix itself.
Disruptive technology creates new opportunities for crime. On distant worlds and those not unlike our own, struggling humans commit terrible acts to survive, artificial intelligence breaks all boundaries for love, steals human identities, and solves impossible mysteries. Investigators enforce laws written by corporations, humans murder clones with impunity, and the underclasses of the future are pushed to the edge again, and again, and again as the line between what is legal and ethical blurs.
Join Jennifer Brozek, Bonnie Jo Stufflebeam, Paul Jessup, Mur Lafferty, Jaime Mason, and more for a wide range of stories that begin with the question of future crime and end with unexpected revelations. These eighteen original stories of science fiction explore the many ways in which crime will evolve with technology. In the future, humans and machines will never stop inventing rules. We will never stop breaking them.
The laser's way is both a scalpel and a gun.
We asked sci-fi writers to send us stories about ways to fix what’s wrong with the world. From the sixty-five stories we received, we chose the twelve most amazing (and hopefully prescient) tales.
Dive in and find out how we might mitigate climate change, make war obsolete, switch to alternative forms of energy, and restructure the very foundations of our society.
The future’s not going to fix itself.
Afraid of clowns? Those gruesome, bloody smiles, the corpse-white flesh, bulbous noses and feet... (Not to mention those treacherous daisies!) Worse yet, the mimes whose silence mocks while their lips form circles of feigned surprise, and whose actions imply worlds beyond our senses. Face your fears head-on with this collection of twenty-two short tales, taking on clowns in their myriad forms. Some clowns match wits with Death, with invading aliens, and with God's Law, while others write their own laws. Meet clowns who suffer for our sins, and clowns who turn that suffering upon their victims.
