Table of Contents: TFF-X: TEN YEARS OF THE FUTURE FIRE edited by Djibril al-Ayad, Cécile Matthey & Valeria Vitale

The Future Fire Magazine is celebrating 10 years of publication with an anthology that collects the best of the previous decade. Here’s the table of contents for the anthology TFF-X: Ten years of The Future Fire: A speculative fiction anthology :

X for ten years, X for marking out a spot in the genre, X for the unknown variable that changes the status quo.

This anthology is a mix of reprints from the first decade of The Future Fire magazine, and new, experimental, unusual or aspirational pieces that push boundaries or play games that might tickle Borges, Calvino and Kafka. With both old and new stories, the editors hope to give a taste of what they’d like to see more of in the next decade, and in the process supply voracious readers with 29 short stories and other pieces of writing full of progressive ideas, underrepresented voices, socially important tales, and of course entertaining, quality fiction! This paper book gives the stories, half of them previously published but in digital form only, another time and space to be enjoyed in.
