We are about to publish two new editions of our books!
We will be publishing the Second Edition of “Visions of the Future” and the Second Edition of “Prospects for Human Survival”.
The plan for Visions of the Future is to add a story by the winner of “The Billionaire’s Gambit” sequel contest plus we’ll be adding a nonfiction article as well plus making some minor corrections.
We are close to our page limits for Visions of the Future, but are willing to consider any fiction or nonfiction submissions for the second edition. This book includes fiction and nonfiction about the future. If we can’t squeeze your submission in, then we will use it in our upcoming sequel to Visions of the Future.
You can learn about all of our books at https://lifeboat.com/ex/books
