Tomorrow Project Books

Journeys Through Time and Space

Humanity defines itself by its journeys. Whether we’re crossing oceans, blasting off into space, migrating to distant unknown lands, or pursuing voyages of discovery within our own minds, we learn about who we are and who we want to become by traversing time, space and the imagination. In this volume, 11 young authors use science fiction storytelling to explore human futures shaped by excursions through space and time, and into the labyrinthine caverns of the human mind. These stories, paired with an essay from renowned planetary scientist and NewSpace pioneer Jim Bell about the thrilling near future of human activity and exploration in space, challenge us to think big and seek the futures we want, even if our journeys take us beyond the bounds of the possible.

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.

Living Tomorrow

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.

Dark Futures

One person’s utopia is another’s dystopia, but both perspectives have one thing in common—hope for humanity is taken away when all the questions are answered for us. Science fiction is the language we use to talk about the future and its endless possibilities, including those that we desire and those that we fear. This collection of science fiction short stories takes us into those dark futures so that we can have a conversation about how to avoid them. Featuring an essay by science fiction author and technology entrepreneur Ramez Naam and an interview with legendary science fiction novelist Kim Stanley Robinson, author of the Mars trilogy, Green Earth, and 2312.

Imagining the Future and Building It

There is a way for us to change the future for the better. We can change the future by changing the story we tell ourselves about the future that we are going to live in. If we want to imagine a better future and then build it then we need to change the story we are telling ourselves about the future we want to live in. This doesn’t mean we shouldn’t talk about futures we want to avoid. Sometimes these concerns are more important than identifying the future we want to live in. But, regardless, we need to change the narrative and change how we have conversations about those narratives.
