Tomorrow Project Anthology: The Future – Powered by Fiction
What if I told you that the future could be found threaded through the words of this anthology? Would you believe it? Would you search through these stories and visions of tomorrow for a hint of what’s to come? It’s true. This collection not only contains the future: it was written by the people who will build it.
The Future: Powered by Fiction was an open call for visions of the future from young minds all over the world. In collaboration with Society for Science & the Public and Arizona State University’s Center for Science and the Imagination, we challenged the authors to give us science based, fact based portraits of what’s to come. The 10 winners were selected by an independent editorial board and each received $1,000. The selected stories are published in this Tomorrow Project anthology.
The Tomorrow Project is an international project that uses science fiction based on science fact to spark conversations about the future. The project believes that everyone should be an active participant in their future and that science fiction based on science fact (aka science fiction prototypes) can give us a language to talk about those futures. We ask people to imagine both the future they want and the futures they want to avoid.
