McSweeney's 32

The new issue of McSweeney's is out, and it looks great. It is ten stories about the not-so-distant and occasionally not-so-apocalyptic future. As explained (albeit somewhat obliquely) in the book: a semi-tangible future is at last seeming imminent, and "the best fiction set in years ahead can deepen that feeling of impending possibility; these stories, we think, are grounded in that spirit, and now is a good time to read them."

With writing from Wells Tower, Heidi Julavits, and Sheila Heti (who wrote one of my favourite books ever, The Middle Stories), this issue is guaranteed to be something to write home about.
