Moderan – New York Review Books
"Welcome to Moderan, world of the future. Here perpetual war is waged by furious masters fighting from Strongholds well stocked with “arsenals of fear” and everyone is enamored with hate. The devastated earth is coated by vast sheets of gray plastic, while humans vie to replace more and more of their own “soft parts” with steel. What need is there for nature when trees and flowers can be pushed up through holes in the plastic? Who requires human companionship when new-metal mistresses are waiting? But even a Stronghold master can doubt the catechism of Moderan. Wanderers, poets, and his own children pay visits, proving that another world is possible. “As if Whitman and Nietzsche had collaborated,” wrote Brian Aldiss of David R. Bunch’s work. Originally published in science-fiction magazines in the 1960s and ’70s, these mordant stories, though passionately sought by collectors, have been unavailable in a single volume for close to half a century. Like Anthony Burgess in A Clockwork Orange, Bunch coined a mind-bending new vocabulary. He sought not to divert readers from the horror of modernity but to make us face it squarely."

"A collection of science fiction stories, art, and speculative timelines exploring the near future of the stratosphere. From Star Trek and 2001: A Space Odyssey to The Martian, great science fiction stories have shaped how we think about voyages into deep space—but what kinds of gripping confrontations and adventures might unfold in near space, above the clouds? Overview features contributions from renowned science fiction authors David Brin, Tobias Buckell, Brenda Cooper, Carter Scholz, and Karl Schroeder, working in collaboration with illustrators, graphic designers, and experts in fields ranging from human spaceflight and signal processing to law and tourism."

"The future is murky. Scout evaluates the near term implications of technology to help you de-risk decision making and seize opportunity. We know you’re busy. That’s why we do the hard work for you, publishing original research, analysis and science fiction scenario planning that evaluates the near-term implications of technology, anticipates opportunity, and highlights risk. Through Scout’s content, scenario planning events, and online conversations, we map the future of artificial intelligence, autonomous vehicles, brain implants, augmented reality, climate damage, genetic augmentation, and other emerging technologies with our community of scientists, technologists, NYT-bestselling authors, and strategic foresight experts."

Modern Masters of Science Fiction
"Science fiction often anticipates the consequences of scientific discoveries. The immense strides made by science since World War II have been matched step by step by writers who gave equal attention to scientific principles, to human imagination, and to the craft of fiction. The respect for science fiction won by Jules Verne and H. G. Wells was further increased by Isaac Asimov, Arthur C. Clarke, Robert Heinlein, Ursula K. Le Guin, Joanna Russ, and Ray Bradbury. Modern Masters of Science Fiction is devoted to books that survey the work of individual authors who continue to inspire and advance science fiction. Books are forthcoming on Gregory Benford, Alfred Bester, Ray Bradbury, John Brunner, Lois McMaster Bujold, Arthur C. Clarke, Philip K. Dick, Greg Egan, William Gibson, Joe Haldeman, China Miéville, and Connie Willis. "
