Assembling a remarkable roster of writers, Terraform has established itself by publishing short fiction seemingly ripped from tomorrow’s headlines, speculative fiction about the very near future. Over the last six years, as science fiction itself has achieved a new kind of mainstream credibility and the media landscape has transformed entirely, Terraform has blazed an unexpected path that has seen short stories go viral and given fiction an unparalleled urgency and relevance.

Drawing from established luminaries like Bruce Sterling and Cory Doctorow, rising stars, and surprising newcomers, Terraform stories are marked by their convincing engagement with the world that we just might live in, putting our most existential issues into startling dramatic context. Edited by Brian Merchant and Claire L. Evans, and divided here into three categories—Watch/Worlds/Burn—these stories take on surveillance (Watch), artificial intelligence (Worlds), and climate collapse (Burn).
