This anthology has only nine stories, but each work is solid and profound. It's not uncommon to find science fiction stories about the near-future and technological advancement, but this collection is different because the approach is overwhelmingly positive and diverse. Mind you, I enjoy my share of post-apocalyptic stories, too, but the overall vibe here was refreshing and just what I needed. Two of my favorites were Deborah Walker's "Love in a Lonely City 2050," about match-making AI in the future, and Laurence Raphael Brothers's "Houseproud," about sentient, adoring houses and the good they do for their humans.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0692695982, Paperback)

Change is coming and it's going to affect humans right where we live. By 2050, city living is going to look very different from what we know today. Across the globe, cities are going green and getting smarter. Artificial intelligence is playing a bigger role in our lives every day and the nomad generation is redefining what 'home' is. In these pages we explore future cities all over the world. In Nigeria, we see how students are making their cities smarter. In London, a charming AI wants to help you find love. In Australia, a drowned Dutch city finds a new home. And in California, charismatic cities don't need us to run them at all. The future visions in this anthology come from nine of today's premiere science fiction writers and futurists. These examples are futurist storytelling at its finest, because they examine not only the technologies that will affect our future, but how people will learn and grow and interact with those technologies. Come, let's take a look at our future.
