Editorial Review:

Product Description:


When tomorrow has become a question mark — filled with as much malice as promise — can science fiction be a means of exploring the answer?

Virtual Futures presents eighteen bursts of speculative fiction that explore the landscape of the near future: short stories that depict a world populated by killer voice-controlled speakers, AIs with mental health disorders, narcotic nanobots, and much, much more.

With previous appearances from Pat Cadigan, M. John Harrison, and Alan Moore, discover what this generation of authors think will be awaiting us when we step into the future…
