In 1948 Orwell saw a world in flux, at risk of losing liberty so recently won.
In response he wrote Nineteen Eighty-Four, a prophetic book.
Now, in 2017, the themes are still with us. This anthology of new short stories draws together leading science fiction writers - famous for their visions of our near future - and asks them to look into our future, to the year 2084. Put humanity on trial as the oceans rise. Slip over borders in a Balkanised Europe. Tread the bizarre streets of cities ruled by memes. See the world through the eyes of drones. Say goodbye to your body as humanity merges with technology. Warnings or prophesies? The path to Paradise or destruction? Will we be proud of what we have achieved, in 2084?Our future unfolds before us.
