Summary
A fascinating collection of fiction-turned-reality tales. Long before movies like Minority Report and The Matrix, the world's writers have been recording the future as it might exist;and as it turns out, they were right. This bizarre anthology collects the most stunning predictions and imagined inventions here for the first time. Visions of Tomorrow includes The Land Iron Clads by H. G. Wells, who described a military tank in 1903?long before it was ever a possibility; The Yesterday House by Fritz Leiber, who wrote about cloned humans; and many more. In this stunning anthology of never-before-collected stories, our world's greatest science fiction writers demonstrate that the truth can be just as strange as fiction
