TRSF - MIT Technology Review

Written by MIT Technology Review
Format(s): EPUB MOBI
Language: English

Welcome to the 2011 TRSF, the first annual anthology of original science fiction stories from MIT鈥檚 Technology Review. With stories set in the near future from celebrated masters and emerging authors, TRSF is our contribution to the tradition of 鈥渉ard鈥?science fiction. It鈥檚 a tradition that stretches all the way back to Jules Verne, in which writers draw from the cutting edges of engineering and science, and try to portray how technology might advance in a way that futurists, economists, and other down-to-earth pundits can鈥檛.

Because of its emphasis on technical plausibility, hard science fiction has been accused in the past鈥攏ot always unfairly鈥攐f neglecting plot and character development in favor of breathless exposition about some flashy gadget or astronomical phenomenon. But the stories in these pages prove that you don鈥檛 have to sacrifice great writing to say something interesting about how the future might work. Hard science fiction has also been accused鈥攁gain, not always unfairly鈥攐f being the jealously guarded preserve of mostly American men. So, striving for a richer spectrum of viewpoints, we have chosen male and female authors who come from around the world, including one writer whose work is appearing for the first time in English.

Inspired by the real-world technological breakthroughs covered online and in print by Technology Review, these authors bring you 12 visions of tomorrow, looking at how the Internet, computing, energy, biotechnology, spaceflight, and more might develop, and how those developments might affect the people who have to live with them. What do you think of these visions? What technologies do you believe are going to profoundly transform how we live, and would deserve to be the inspiration for a story in next year鈥檚 TRSF?

-- Stephen Cass, Editor
