Hello, all and welcome to Friday! This week, I have an excerpt from the brand new anthology, Fix the World, specifically from the antho's organizer, J. Scott Coatsworth and his story "Rise". :D
Scott asked for hopeful science fiction stories about addressing what's wrong with our current world and how the human race might face these challenges. "Rise" is one of the stories focused on the consequences of climate change - come have a listen. :)
Fix the World
by J. Scott Coatsworth and 11 science fiction writers
We're a world beset by crises. Climate change, income inequality, racism, pandemics, an almost unmanageable tangle of issues. Sometimes it's hard to look ahead and see a hopeful future.
We asked sci-fi writers to send us stories about ways to fix what's wrong with the world. From the sixty-five stories we received, we chose twelve most amazing (and hopefully prescient) tales.
Dive in and find out how we might mitigate climate change, make war obsolete, switch to alternative forms of energy, and restructure the very foundations of our society,
The future's not going to fix itself.
