About the Book
tHREE THOUSAND AND NINE Daniel Boland, Pauline O’Hare, Niamh MacAlister, Brian Duggan. Four new stories beginning almost a thousand years from now in the year three thousand and nine. The future is not only reimagined but our present circumstances are implicated through history. A message from the far side of the galaxy, holographic visions from alternate times, corporate viruses and antidotes, and auxiliary activity from a depopulated land. New narratives open up the possibilities inherent in what we think of, when we think of the future. These human stories connect the present to the times ahead, and collectively these tales ask what might happen when we get there ? Afterword by Francis McKee.
