Email from the Future: Notes from 2084

 

What would the world look like if we did everything right for the next 50 years?

 

“A compelling series of speculations about what the next century will be like…Not only readable, but deeply thought-provoking.”

 

Kirkus Reviews

It’s 2084, and Aldus, an elderly robot repairman, is writing the history of the 21st century for his grandson, Luca. Born in 2010, Aldus lived through it all—the War on the Warming, the repair of the planet, the rise of true artificial intelligence, automation everywhere and much more. “I was but a foot soldier,” Aldus tells his grandson, “but there is value in that perspective.”

Aldus also fears his time is short. Unlucky members of his generation sometimes experience long-delayed side effects from childhood infection with COVID. Aldus could be among them, and so his writing may have a literal deadline.

Heartfelt, hopeful, and often humorous—a utopian novel in the truest sense—Email From the Future blends fact and fiction to spin a detailed picture of the future. From climate change, education, space travel, and religion to sex, food, crime, politics and even gaming, acclaimed futurist Michael Rogers describes the world of 2084. And more importantly, how we can survive long enough to actually get there.
