Arizona State University’s Center for Science and the Imagination has released the first story in its Crowd Futures project. In this experiment in collaborative storytelling,  authors and illustrators will invite members of an “intellectually curious public” to “propose scenarios, sharing ideas, weighing options, and navigating the uncertainties of our looming scientific and technological discoveries.” (You can see why I am in futurist love.)

This month CSI released the first story resulting from this project, We Have Already Died in the Castle, by Elizabeth Bear, illustrated by Melissa Gay.  Download this free publication to explore Bear & Gay’s vision of the uses society might find for truly realistic, multisensory Virtual Reality–therapy, criminal justice, gaming, empathy, redemption? Enjoy!
