English | 2021 | Science Fiction | eBook | 857 KB
Science fiction stories of ingenuity, grit, and inspiration. This new volume in the Twelve Tomorrows series of science fiction anthologies presents stories that envision how science and technology–existing or speculative–might help us create a more equitable and hopeful world after the coronavirus pandemic. The original stories presented here, from a diverse collection of authors, offer no miracles or simple utopias, but visions of ingenuity, grit, and incremental improvement. In the tradition of inspirational science fiction that goes back to Isaac Asimov and Arthur C. Clarke, these writers remind us that we can choose our future, and show us how we might build it.
