Take a whirlwind tour of tomorrow through the minds of 10 young authors as they paint compelling pictures of what could happen over the next several decades through short science fiction stories. Featuring a foreword by professional futurist Brian David Johnson and an interview with journalist Bryan Walsh.

This collection is part of Tomorrow Project USA, a collaboration between ASU’s Center for Science and the Imagination, Intel, and the Society for Science & the Public that ignites creative, productive, science-based conversations about the future through books of original stories, essays, and artwork created by K-12 and college students. The collections are overseen by an editorial board of leading researchers, journalists, and scholars.


Ed Finn is the founding director of the Center for Science and the Imagination at ASU and an assistant professor in the School of Arts, Media and Engineering and the Department of English.

G. Pascal Zachary is a professor of practice at ASU’s School for the Future of Innovation in Society and the author of several books, including "The Diversity Advantage: Multicultural Identity in the New World Economy."
