Near-Future Fictions

Virtual Futures presents the first New York City edition of Near-Future Fictions.

Continuing our mission to reassert the significance of science-fiction as a tool for navigating our interactions with technology in the future, the event aims to bring together American and English writers to delve beneath

the Big Apple's luminescent veneer.
