Flash Forward: An Illustrated Guide to Possible (and Not So Possible) Tomorrows

We rated this book:


In this book version of the popular podcast of the same name, Flash Forward: An Illustrated Guide to Possible (And Not So Possible) Tomorrows, podcast creator, author, and journalist Rose Evereth has picked twelve possible tomorrows (ten of which have appeared in some form or other on the podcast) to deep dive into, but the kicker is that each chapter begins with a long comic from a wide and diverse range of graphic arts, giving different styles and insights into these unique worlds.

In Flash Forward, you can take a trip to a world that has been significantly swallowed up by the oceans and where people live in underwater cities, or check out a place where you never have to sleep with the help of a pill and can keep on having fun or working indefinitely. Then there’s the conundrum we will have to face when we settle on the moon and other worlds and how one solves a crime in space, or you may want to take a peek into a eerily familiar world where fake news is the norm and governs everything. At the end of each chapter, Evereth gives you an essay talking about these possible worlds.

Take a trip into the world of your wildest imagination with this book.
