Giveaway: Diverse Energies (US Only)

Giveaway: Diverse Energies (US Only)

“No one can doubt that the wave of the future is not the conquest of the world by a single dogmatic creed but the liberation of the diverse energies of free nations and free men. No one can doubt that cooperation in the pursuit of knowledge must lead to freedom of the mind and freedom of the soul.”
—President John F. Kennedy, from a speech at University of California, March 23, 1962

In a world gone wrong, heroes and villains are not always easy to distinguish and every individual has the ability to contribute something powerful.

In this stunning collection of original and rediscovered stories of tragedy and hope, the stars are a diverse group of students, street kids, good girls, kidnappers, and child laborers pitted against their environments, their governments, differing cultures, and sometimes one another as they seek answers in their dystopian worlds. Take a journey through time from a nuclear nightmare of the past to society’s far future beyond Earth with these eleven stories by masters of speculative fiction. Includes stories by Paolo Bacigalupi, Ursula K. Le Guin, Malinda Lo, Cindy Pon, Daniel H. Wilson, and more.

As a history teacher, I've been talking with my students about the parallels between the past and today. We notice similar trends with new innovations, so I imagine we'll be dealing with the same issues of humanity with new methods of industry, transportation, and communication to throw us for a loop.

I imagine the world will be hungry. I think with the way things are going, we will have to fight our neighbors just for a piece of bread. No one will be safe.

Very very different. I can't even imagine it. The technology will either be out of this world, or we'll go backwards and avoid it altogether.

100 years from now, I truly hope that we will have learned to respect each other and learn from each other. We will be working very hard to restore the balance in nature, and technology will be helping us wit that. Oh yeah, everyone will still be reading books on paper as well as electronically

A lot different than it does today. Polar icecaps will have probably all melted and possibly even the deconstruction of governmental systems.

A hundred years from now is so hard to imagine. I do not think it will be so much different then know. Just more technology that will replace what humans do.

I think 100 years from now will be a world completely taken over by technology. Humans won't have to do much of anything.

I think that everything will be controlled by technology and we will become very lazy and fat. And then the power will go out and we will have to try to survive without technology.
