New Maps: Vol. 2, No. 3 (Summer, 2022) - PDF
Marvel at technological miracles: Your consciousness uploaded to Cloud 9! Autonomous transport pods! Time travel, and not just at the usual speed! Plus more … And watch amazed as each of them doesn’t solve all the world’s problems! This issue of New Maps sees the unexpected high-tech possibilities of the deindustrial future coming to the fore: in the forests of Oregon, on the highway across a fractured western U.S., in a research facility buried deep under Texas, and in a metaverse near you. As well, excellent stories of lower-tech futures, including a pirate’s bargain, a frightening new breed of successful youngster, and a fresh idea for political representation. These are joined by Cheap Thrills and two new columnists, as well as letters and a new community-contributed feature. There’s a lot new to see, even besides the futuristic inventions: check it out!
