world has changed. Humanity’s very survival is threatened
famine, pollution and human hybris. Civilizations
fall, but it is not the end.
It is worse. Humanity
survives but now has to adapt to a new, bleak reality.
Be it a society where people’s minds are controlled
by sentient machines,
an authoritarian government
ruling the lives of its citizens with an iron fist,
or a world where the total number of survivors is
one – the stories in this
collection bring a vivid
and chilling vision of a dystopian future that may
may not happen.
