"Twelve Tomorrows" is the latest special science fiction issue of the MIT Technology Review. Last year's special volume was a huge hit, containing some of the best SF stories of 2012… and this edition carries on that tradition, with vivid tales by Greg Egan, Nancy Kress, Allen Steele, Peter Watts and myself… along with other fine writers, all aimed at dealing with near-future possible trends or shocks in technology and its impact on human lives.
Also, an interview with Neal Stephenson and a spectacular multi-page, color feature on the Art of Richard Powers!
My own story deals with a near future option offered by "specs" or googlasses, to replace prison as a punishment with something else. SOmething that is both better and more chilling. http://www.technologyreview.com/twelvetomorrows/
