8 Books About the Distant Future to Read in the Near Future



December 8, 2016

The futurism industry is booming and the competition has been good for consumers of new ideas. Where books about the distant future once focused on outlandish scenarios, positing theories unsupported by data or true argumentation, current examples of that genre tend to traffic in trend parsing, science, and historical context. The modern boom in smart prediction — arguably set off by Peter Singer’s A Darwinian Left: Politics, Evolution, and Cooperation in 2001 — will turn bookstore shelves (to the degree to which they still exist) into windows on tomorrow as publishers rush to put out the most definitive bit of prognostication in 2017.
