With worries surrounding climate change, artificial intelligence and unmanned aerial vehicles and drones, among other things, science fiction is a realm that easily taps into these fears and dystopian elements.

What will our future look like? How long will the future be, with all of the potentially world-changing challenges?

ASU’s Center for Science and the Imagination has published a new book of short stories that examine those topics, with a touch of dystopia and another bit of optimism. The book is called "Future Tense Fiction: Stories of Tomorrow."

One of its editors, Joey Eschrich, joined The Show to talk about the publication.
