    Description

    A glittering landscape of twenty-five speculative stories that challenge oppression and envision new futures for America - from N. K. Jemisin, Charles Yu, Jamie Ford, G. Willow Wilson, Charlie Jane Anders, Hugh Howey, and more. 

    In these tumultuous times, in our deeply divided country, many people are angry, frightened, and hurting. Knowing that imagining a brighter tomorrow has always been an act of resistance, editors Victor LaValle and John Joseph Adams invited an extraordinarily talented group of writers to share stories that explore new forms of freedom, love, and justice. 

    They asked for narratives that would challenge oppressive American myths, release us from the chokehold of our history, and give us new futures to believe in. They also asked that the stories be badass. The result is this spectacular collection of 25 tales that blend the dark and the light, the dystopian and the utopian. 

    These tales are vivid with struggle and hardship - whether it’s the othered and the terrorized, or dragonriders and covert commandos - but these characters don’t flee, they fight.Thrilling, inspiring, and a sheer joy to listen to, A People’s Future of the United States is a gift for anyone who believes in our power to dream a just world.

    Fascinating and Diverse Exploration of Reality

    I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I really enjoyed the very diverse voices found within this collection, exploring so many different “What if...?” scenarios. An amusing, thoughtful, cautionary, and eye opening journey.

    Wonderful Trip

    I loved this book and will probably read it again. There is too much to talk about, because SO much and many peoples were featured, but 0.1 and Harmony were my favorites. They both made me cry.
