The Future: Powered by Fiction, a SF anthology from ASU and Intel

The Future Powered by Fiction Front CoverIt turns out that Hieroglyph: Stories and Visions for a Better Future wasn’t the only science fiction anthology published by ASU’s Center for Science and the Imagination this month! On Friday, September 5 we published The Future: Powered by Fiction in partnership with Intel’s Tomorrow Project and the Society for Science & the Public.

The anthology, which is free to read and share, features ten compelling visions of the future crafted by winners of a short story competition open to young adults ages 13-25 from all over the world. The short stories featured in the anthology were written by authors from eight different U.S. states, as well as Canada and Hong Kong.

The Future: Powered by Fiction was co-edited by Project Hieroglyph’s Ed Finn and G. Pascal Zachary, a Professor of Practice at Arizona State University’s Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication and Consortium for Science, Policy, and Outcomes, and features contributions from Intel Futurist Brian David Johnson and Bryan Walsh, a senior editor and environmental writer for TIME magazine.

You can download the anthology here, or learn more at the Tomorrow Project website. And stay tuned: Intel and the Center for Science and the Imagination will partner on three more anthologies to be released throughout 2014 and 2015, showcasing other outstanding science fiction futures from around the world!

    My compliments to the staff. You provided a title that aptly relates to the contents of the book and your objective. Now please rethink the continued use of the word “Hieroglyph” in terms of the overall project and title to other anthologies. For most people, the word “hieroglyph” is a word that they either (1) don’t understand at all as to what it means or (2) it represents a “hard to decipher language used by ancient Egyptians” — and has no connection to optimistic sci-fi stories about the future.
