If This Goes On
Parvus Press




We are looking for unique stories that offer insights into the shared future of our planet. Tell us how our climate will change if we don’t better protect our planet. Show us how the racial divide in this country is only growing wider. Warn us of a coming era of neo-colonialism if we don’t develop conscientious trade practices. Scare us into taking digital security more seriously as we hand over the keys to our digital lives to governments and non-state powers.
Open our eyes to our future.

Must be set at least one generation in the future (You are welcome to write an epic fantasy in the Friedman tradition, so long as it is in the far future!)

Two dozen of today’s most visionary writers project us forward to the world of the future; a world shaped by nationalism, isolationism, and a growing divide between the haves and have nots. This anthology sits at the intersection of politics, speculative fiction, and American identity.
