Our science fiction visions of the future often obsess over the mechanical and the digital—from rockets and space stations to holodecks and cyberspace. In this volume, 11 young authors use science fiction storytelling to explore a diverse range of possible futures shaped by biological and environmental challenges and solutions.
These stories, paired with interviews and essays from top thinkers in fields ranging from science fiction and futurism to archaeology, physics, and the history of science and technology, inspire us to contemplate and cultivate the fetching futures we want, while motivating us to take steps to prevent nightmarish alternatives.
This collection is part of Tomorrow Project USA, a collaboration between ASU’s Center for Science and the Imagination, Intel, and the Society for Science & the Public that ignites creative, productive, science-based conversations about the future through books of original stories, essays, and artwork created by K-12 and college students. The collections are overseen by an editorial board of leading researchers, journalists, and scholars.
