Gibson, perhaps? (Score: 1) by email@example.com on 2014-04-22 15:18 (#154) I don't know about current authors and predictions for the next 50 years, and I am very much looking forward to what others contribute to this conversation. When I've gone back and reread some Gibson novels years after I first read them, though, I've sometimes been surprised at how prophetic some aspects of them seem (he hardly qualifies as a utopian, mind you). The same is true of some Stross, though that's really likely more a case of catching an emerging trend and expanding on where it might logically progress.Ok, people, hit me with a reading list. I need some horizons expanded.
