About this title

Synopsis:

Future Washington is a collection of stories by noted science fiction writers from around the world, and the political spectrum, which looks at possible futures for the US capitol. Throughout the collection, Washington is faced with challenge after challenge, leading novelist and futurist Bruce Sterling to comment:

"...it sure was interesting that Washington is wrecked, drowned or comprehensively destroyed in practically every story in your collection."

But that’s not really surprising, because the future (and any good stories) is expected to be full of challenge. The important thing to take away from these stories is how the residents rise to meet those challenges, be they the rise of theocracy or the waters of the Potomac.

Colleen Cahill (Recommending Officer for Science Fiction and Fantasy at the Library of Congress) wrote:

"(these) stories take us to a D.C. that might be, with visions both light and dark, containing destruction, growth, humor and serious thought...whether the US government is alive and well, transformed by time or a distant memory, all the stories include a hint of the D.C. of today, making this a book for those of us who have lived or currently live in or near the city. It is the great writing and interesting visions of the future that make this a work for any who enjoying good reading."
