A more positive and realistic science fiction future?

Tuesday, 13 April, 2010

Shine, a book complied by Jetse de Vries, is a collection of science fiction stories that are both positive, somewhat realistic, and set in the near future.

Definitely not a plethora of Pollyannas (but neither a barrage of dystopias), SHINE will show that positive change is far from being a foregone conclusion, but needs to be hardfought, innovative, robust and imaginative. Most importantly, it aims to demonstrate that while times are tough and outcomes are uncertain, we can still bend the future in benevolent ways if we embrace change and steer its momentum in the right direction.
