Futures Past

The best science fiction is often more about the present it's written in than it is about the future it's claiming to predict. The blank screen of the future allows writers to explore burning concerns of the present day through allegory and the prism of SF, and to talk about those concerns in completely new ways. With this in mind, Comma has commissioned ten or more writers from various countries and communities around the world – places not particularly known for the science fiction output – to write stories set 100 years after a seismic, national event, impacting its sovereignty and affecting its people for decades to come. This series asks: what will the future look like for these countries; will they have finally freed themselves of this event, or will history keep repeating itself?
