"A mind-bendingly adventurous collection with story content as diverse as its authors."

"Future Fiction offers a selection of imaginative, adventurous sci-fi by international authors - and that is what makes this collection so welcome and exciting. These stories take place in every part of the world and are told in distinct, diverse voices. Whether their focus is transhumanism or ecological devastation, space travel or techno-dystopia, they remind us that future does not happen to a select few, but to everyone, everywhere. Highly recommended reading for anyone open to expanding their idea of international science fiction."
