An exploration of potential tomorrows from the host of the massively popular and critically acclaimed podcast Flash Forward

Flash Forward: An Illustrated Guide to Possible (And Not So Possible) Tomorrows takes readers on a journey from speculative fiction to speculative "fact." Producer and host of the podcast Flash Forward,
Rose Eveleth poses provocative questions about our future, which are
brought to life by 12 of the most imaginative comics and graphic artists
at work, including Matt Lubchanksy, Sophie Goldstein, Ben Passmore, and
Box Brown. Each artist chooses a subject close to their heart-Ignatz
Award nominee Julia Gfroerer, for instance, will imagine a future in
which robots make art-and presents their chosen future in their own
style. Drawing on her interviews with experts in various fields of
study, Eveleth will then report on what is complete fantasy and what is
only just out of reach in insightful essays following the comics. This
book introduces compelling visions of the future and vividly explores
the human consequences of developing technologies. Flash Forward reveals how complicated, messy, incredible, frightening, and strange our future might be.

Review quote

"Flash Forward is an essential work of imagination and journalism, as only Rose Eveleth could have created. Eye-opening and thought-provoking, it's a powerful reminder, at this crucial moment in time, that the future is still ours to envision, through neither naïve optimism nor cynical nihilism, but instead a respect for history and a commitment to justice."--Ed Yong, award-winning Atlantic journalist and author of I Contain Multitudes
