This August, MCD will be publishing an anthology of near future science fiction from VICE’s acclaimed digital speculative story destination, Terraform [link inserted]. And right now, we’re especially thrilled to be sharing with you here Chloe Scheffe’s retina-searing cover for the book, in stores August 16, which we think brilliantly captures the dazzling, innovative spirit of Terraform…The anthology—which is made up of both the best of Terraforn’s archive along with a dozen new, never-before-published stories—is divided into three categories: Watch, Worlds, and Burn. Thee stories take on surveillance, artificial intelligence, and climate collapse, painting a vivid and often unsettling portrait of the near future. It is a vital read for understanding our changing tomorrow. Buy it in stores on August 16, and pre-order here.
