(2018)
A collection of stories by

 
 
Twenty-three stories from one of science fiction's up-and-coming stars, Pushcart and Journey Prize-nominated author Rich Larson.

Welcome to the Tomorrow Factory.

On your left, post-human hedonists on a distant space station bring diseases back in fashion, two scavengers find a super-powered parasite under the waves of Sunk Seattle, and a terminally-ill chemist orchestrates an asteroid prison break.

On your right, an alien optometrist spins illusions for irradiated survivors of the apocalypse, a high-tech grifter meets his match in near-future Thailand, and two teens use a blackmarket personality mod to get into the year's wickedest, wildest party.

This collection of published and original fiction by award-winning writer Rich Larson will bring you from a Bujumbura cyberpunk junkyard to the icy depths of Europa, from the slick streets of future-noir Chicago to a tropical island of sapient robots. You'll explore a mysterious ghost ship in deep space, meet an android learning to dream, and fend off predatory alien fungi on a combat mission gone wrong.

Twenty-three futures, ranging from grimy cyberpunk to far-flung space opera, are waiting to blow you away.

So step inside the Tomorrow Factory, and mind your head.

Praise for this book

"One of the most exciting and prolific science fiction and fantasy writers working today. His range - and of course his talent - is remarkable." - John Joseph Adams

"Enjoyably twisty SF tales with an ample serving of weird tech (and the way it distorts the people who use it). I’ll be looking out for more from Rich Larson." - Neal Asher

"Larson is one of the best new writers to enter science fiction in more than a decade. His stories are always exciting, inventive, evocative, and sometimes profound." - Gardner Dozois

"The most impressive new short fiction writer in science fiction and fantasy over the last few years, bringing to mind writers like Robert Silverberg and Robert Reed. Tomorrow Factory is a first-rate introduction: fast-moving, affecting, driving, and powerful." - Rich Horton

"Rich Larson writes sharp, ambitious fiction that I can't forget. Tomorrow Factory is a fantastic chance to see him at his best." - Kij Johnson

"Stories of growl, attack and bite - sentences muscular with taut language, sinewed with concision and outsider sensibility. Tomorrow Factory is all that SFF is capable of, all that it hopes to be - and more." - Ian McDonald

"Rich Larson's stories crackle with energy and imagination and I'm only a little jealous- signed, the 3rd most prolific short fiction author of 2016." - Sarah Pinsker

"Powerful, thought-provoking, and filled with little moments of humanity that makes his stories resonate, Rich Larson’s debut collection should be required reading for modern science fiction fans." - Jason Sizemore

"Every now and then the science fiction field sees the arrival of a startling new talent. Rich Larson is just that. A writer of powerful, perceptive stories that stand with the best. Tomorrow Factory dazzles with smart, sharp, insightful stories, and belongs on your bookshelf. One of the books of the year." - Jonathan Strahan

"Tomorrow Factory is sharp, perceptive, and immensely entertaining. Rich Larson is science fiction’s most impressive new voice for short stories." - Rick Wilber

"Larson has honed his talent playing with reality. Frequently, if I’m not too disturbed after reading one of Rich’s tales, I find I’m left, like Finch at the conclusion to ‘An Evening with Severyn Grimes,’ with ‘the ghost of a smile on my face.’ It’s an experience I highly recommend." - Sheila Williams
