    One thought on “Visions of Tomorrow: Science Fiction Predictions that Came True”

    1. Man, there s some cool stuff in here Maybe not a ton of FANTASTIC stories, but to see, you know, Google and the Internet conceived of in a story from the 50 s is pretty neat I also liked seeing how these writers wrote in how society changes as a result of these technology, and all the little fiddly bits that would go along with the advent of these new items.

    2. DNF 19% Introduction was good, couldn t get into the first 3 stories, reading someone s talk about the stories was interesting than reading them myself

    3. I felt like reading the information about the stories was interesting than reading the stories themselves.

    4. Too many people think that science fiction s job is to predict the future Of course, science fiction has no such requirement But there have been a few times when a science fiction story has proved to be remarkably prescient of a future event or trend This anthology is a collection of those stories For example, were you aware that in May 1970, Gregory Benford wrote a story about a criminal who wrote a computer program that would copy itself to another computer, which would copy itself to another [...]

    5. Visions of Tomorrow is a collection of science fiction stories which correctly predicted future developments, in some cases in a surprising fashion Here are my opinions of each of the stories, along with the year in which they were originally printed.The Balloon Hoax by Edgar Allan Poe 1844 3 stars This story was, apparently, originally printed in newspapers as a true story and only later exposed as a hoax The idea of a manned balloon accidentally crossing the Atlantic Ocean in only 3 days was e [...]

    6. After reading a couple of the stories, found that they weren t to my tastes, so moved on to other books that had to be read quickly because they were due back at the library Nothing bad to say about this book, rather enjoyed the Foreword, just not enough time in the day to spend it forcing myself to read a book, especially when I have a pile of tbr s screaming read me in my room.

    7. On my booklist for a course that I will be teaching in the Spring It s about science fiction writing as prophecy creative problem solving

    8. This was really good There are some classic stories I ve heard about but never before read Only one of the stories I remembered the one by Sheckley, since I do enjoy his short stories.
