Vital Signals

Virtual Futures Near-Future Fictions

by Allen Ashley, Jennifer Marie Brissett, Brendan C. Byrne, Dan Coxon, Paul Currion, C.R. Dudley, Pippa Goldschmidt, Frances Gow, Paul Green, David Gullen, John Houlihan, Simon Ings, Viraj Joshi, Jessica Laine, Ken MacLeod, Tim Maughan, Anne McKinnon, Jane Norris, Stephen Oram, Jule Owen, Adrian Reynolds, Jennifer Rohn, Geoff Ryman, Antoine Saint Honoré, Britta Schulte, Sophie Sparham, David Turnbull, Tom Ward, Jamie Watt, Bea Xu

A volume of short sharp stories that present alternative or unconsidered visions of the future; stories that draw attention to the potential impact of cutting-edge science and technology on society and humanity.

In addition to established SF authors such as Tim Maughan, Geoff Ryman, Simon Ings, and Ken MacLeod, the anthology features stories by producers, civil servants, artists, and more – delivering a broader appreciation of what the future might hold. 

This is science fiction with intent, providing quick bursts of conjecture and insight, guaranteed to both entertain and stimulate.
