McSweeney's 32

From the store page for McSweeney’s 32:

“Because it seemed important to know in advance, we’ve dedicated Issue 32 to an investigation of the world to come—near-future stories written by the likes of Anthony Doerr, Heidi Julavits, Wells Tower, Chris Adrian, and Salvador Plascencia, each of ’em unearthing a different corner of life in the year 2024. This will be, we are sure, way more entertaining than waiting fifteen years for the real thing.”

I don’t know to what extent speculative fiction will be a departure for most of these authors, but it should suit Chris Adrian well enough – his second novel, The Children’s Hospital, was a mammoth revisiting of Noah and the Ark, flash-forwarded a few thousand years with a children’s hospital as an ark. McSweeney’s 32 should be a good one, particularly given it’s bulky 2lbs.
