Summary

This title will be available by 15 November 2018

What if machines meant to help humans took over their owners? Or if unending traffic jams forced Swedish detectives to levitate around the Indian city of Bluru? How did the deadly cyclone in the Bay of Bengal that had everyone on tenterhooks suddenly calm down? What does one do when killer zombies launch an attack in Chennai or when eager-to-please musical creatures refuse to go back into their pods? And did the giant Tetrahedron appear on the streets of New Delhi to help people see beyond their present reality?
Alternate worlds and futures—or pasts—have never seemed as full of potential or as visionary as in these stories by some of the best storytellers in the country, including Manjula Padmanabhan, Jerry Pinto, Vandana Singh, Srinath Perur, Rashmi Ruth Devadasan, J.C. Bose, Indra Das, Shalini Srinivasan, Zac O’Yeah, Sunando C. and Vinayak Varma. Satirical, humorous and thought-provoking, these mindboggling stories will amaze you with their depth of imagination and are a must-read for all sci-fi lovers!
