Stories of Science, Technology and the Future

Jeanne Schinto (Editor)

In this unique anthology, you will find an intriguing mix of first-rank science fiction writers and mainstream literary writers. All are using the power of storytelling to explore the human costs and rewards of living in an era increasingly dominated by science and technology. Here, futuristic tales of alien-earthling encounters, cyberlife, and new social orders stand easily alongside stories about more immediate realities, such as e-mail romance, bio-technology, and high-tech warfare. 

Contributors include Margaret Atwood, Thomas Fox Averill, Alsion Baker, Michael Bishop, Terry Bisson, Michael Blumlein, Octavia E. Butler, Stephen Dixon, Audrey Ferber, Karen Joy Fowler, Richard Goldstein, Ursula K. Le Guin, Dorris Lessing, Ralph Lombreglia, and Simon Ortiz.

Jeanne Schinto is the author of three books, Shadow Bands: Stories; Children of Men, a novel; and Huddle Fever: Living in the Immigrant City. She has also edited the short fiction anthologies Show Me A Hero and The Literary Dog: Great Contemporary Dog Stories. Ms. Schinto teaches literature and creative writing at Brooks School in North Andover, Massachusetts.
