Description

Writing short stories - contrary to popular belief - is very hard. You can't procrastinate, you can't hide behind turns of phrase, you have to know where you are going and which buttons to press to reach the point in as few words as possible. Paradoxically the short story is the narrative form most suitable for the accelerated times in which we all find ourselves: brief, dense, and compact, the short story is a precious and agile interface for understanding the future we will be living in for the rest of our days. --These are Francesco Verso's first eleven short stories written between 2008 and 2020, inside you will find a kaleidoscope of visions of the future, ranging from augmented reality to artificial intelligence, from gamification to solarpunk, all the way to biotechnology and post-humanism.

Francesco Verso is a multiple-award Italian Science Fiction writer and editor. He has published: Antidoti umani, e-Doll, Nexhuman, Bloodbusters, and one of the first solarpunk novels, I camminatori (made of I Pulldogs and No/Mad/Land). Nexhuman and Bloodbusters - translated in English by Sally McCorry - have been published in the US, UK and soon in China for Bofeng Culture. He also works as editor and publisher of Future Fiction, a multicultural project dedicated to scouting and publishing the best SF in translation from the world, with stories coming from more than 30 countries and translations 11 languages.
