From back of book: Predicting the future has long been a cornerstone of science fiction. From such classic works as Brave New World to Neuromancer, authors have looked at the world they live in and extrapolated their own visions of the future. And over the years, the number of trends in society, politics, and religion that have followed these forecasts is impressive, as are the science fiction inventions that have become integral parts of our current high-tech society.
Now, seventeen farseeing authors have taken up the challenge of gazing into the future and seeing where America may be the day after tomorrow. From an America where history has become myth and misinformation amid the ruins of a once-great land...to a place where the only existence for genetic misfits is as slaves to the "Gawders"...to a company intent on cloning the world's species, both extinct and endangered, back to a balanced ecosystem, here are original stories that will have readers thinking about the future, and about how their own actions now could make a difference tomorrow.
