Future Tense Fiction: Stories of Tomorrow - San Francisco


Now available from Unnamed Press, Future Tense Fiction: Stories of Tomorrow features 14 speculative stories from such accomplished authors as Paolo Bacigalupi, Emily St. John Mandel, Annalee Newitz, Carmen Maria Machado, and others. By turns funny, alarming, and inspiring, Future Tense Fiction is always a thought-provoking excursion into the futures we would and would not want to live in.

The future, after all, isn’t a fixed path along which we are helplessly propelled. We make the future together through choices small and large, minute and momentous, and stories can be the best way to explore how those choices affect people’s lives. That’s why we publish fiction alongside our journalism on the impact of technology on society.

To celebrate Stories of Tomorrow, please join us at Green Apple Books on the Park with award-winning authors Annalee Newitz, Meg Elison, Hannu Rajaniemi, and Future Tense editor Torie Bosch to discuss Future Tense Fiction and how the stories of tomorrow are informing our choices today.

Follow the conversation online using #FutureTenseFiction and following @FutureTenseNow.

The conversation will feature a Q&A session followed by a book signing.
