Editorial Reviews

Among the displays of foresight in this anthology of never-before-collected prescient tales are H. G. Wells envisioning the use of tanks in warfare; Jeff Hecht and Thomas Eaton pursuing the "whimsy" of high-powered laser and genetic engineering; Vonda McIntyre building predictive fiction upon the concept of print-on-demand organs; Fritz Leiber considering human clones; and Isaac Asmov’s vision of how satellites harnessing solar power might play out. Stage, screen, and television veteran J. P. Linton takes on the many roles, bringing passion, fear, humor, humility, and, always, humanity to the words and visions of science fiction (on the cutting edge of reality) masters.

Publisher's Summary

A fascinating collection of fiction-turned-reality tales.

Long before movies like Minority Report and The Matrix, the world's writers have been recording the future as it might exist - and as it turns out, they were right. This bizarre anthology collects the most stunning predictions and imagined inventions here for the first time. Visions of Tomorrow includes "The Land Iron Clads" by H. G. Wells, who described a military tank in 1903 - long before it was ever a possibility; "The Yesterday House" by Fritz Leiber, who wrote about cloned humans; and many more. In this stunning anthology of never-before-collected stories, our world's greatest science fiction writers demonstrate that the truth can be just as strange as fiction.
