India, the near future: these nine stories, like threads reaching towards tomorrow, explore the variegated tapestry of Indian speculative fiction, touching on themes like the advent of bio-politics, the connections between new (social) media and language, the inexorable rise of Big Data and algorithms, the spread of 3D printers, and the increasing use of prosthetics and human enhancement, without neglecting the risks associated with the use of bio-technologies and computer surveillance, concluding with the philosophical dilemmas posed to immortality by the presence of virtual avatars and the climate emergency in the era of the Anthropocene.

To try to understand the most pressing issues of our times, we need to look at the future.
