I am proud to introduce a positive Sci-Fi collection of twelev short stories. Utopia Pending!
As someone who writes in the post-apocalypse my mind is always wading in a future of nihilistic doom and radioactive penguins. Don’t ask about that last one.
The thing is, despite my love for the Wasteland, my favorite thing is Star Trek. The unabashed optimism and belief that deep down we, as a species, have it in us to create a future where we strive to be better. Maybe I am cheesy like that, but honestly, despite my dark humor, I am a disappointed optimist at heart.
So when I was approached to take part in a short story collection that explored the bright possibilities of the future I jumped on it. With the earth’s temperature rising, nationalism spreading, and young, disenfranchised generations losing hope, I wanted to end this gloomy year on a high note.
Twelve speculative fiction writers, including myself, have created Twelve vastly different futures for you to dive into. From space-age to the return of the wild, from virtual reality to endless summer, from a software-powered paradise to a world without any power at all. No two are alike and all are a breath of fresh air from the terrible strifes of the 24-hour news cycle.
The best part? You can get these twelve stories for only 99c or free (if you are in Kindle Unlimited).
As this is the launch, every buy helps to make this collection more visible, and please, leave a review when you are done reading. I know I have been hitting this one a lot lately, but every review helps us like nothing else.
Forget global warming, nuclear proliferation and mass starvation. Forget the doomsayers. The future is (almost) here – and it’s just great! The human race has created Utopia, and if everything’s not perfect, it soon will be.
Or will it? Twelve speculative fiction authors have created twelve wildly different visions of what our Utopian future looks like, and how we got there. From space-age to the return of the wild, from virtual reality to endless summer, from a software-powered paradise to a world without any power at all.
Is a perfect world really possible? Does Paradise have a price – and would we be prepared to pay it? Would we even like it once we got there?
Take a fast train to the future and find out…
