    Hardcover, very gently used, in near-new condition.

     

    From humor to drama to fiction, a cutting-edge collection of stories by ten noted contemporary authors, exploring the future with such diverse themes as love, hate, the environment, disease, and the fate of the human race.  While some of the selections depict colorful (or startlingly bleak) images of the next millennium, others are set in the past. Jon Scieszka serves up a satire starring the first Homo sapiens, while James Cross Giblin imagines a young monk anticipating the end of the first millennium. Other selections are set in the present or near present. Jacqueline Woodson's protagonist, a modern-day, fatherless child, wistfully relates how she is the embodiment of her mother's dream of the future. Lois Lowry shows how an elderly man's image of the future turns sour when his land (which the government has promised to preserve) becomes a prison grounds.
