A new science fiction zine, Living the future, is launching at London’s Banner Repeater, February 28.
Edited by James Hedges and Rebecca Bligh, Issue 1 is called ‘The Next Phase in Human Evolution‘ and features contributions by Ben Osborn, Viniita Neet Moran, Pete Inkpen, Marta Poznanski, Ed Fornieles, Paul Kindersley, Jaakko Pallasvuo, Ad Minoliti, Llew Watkins, Joey Holder and Jack Brennan.
Caught in a self-perpetuating loop of influence, modern life is as much based on science fiction as science fiction is based on modern life and the journal explores this through “future-writing, to include fiction, essays, poetry and visual art”.
There’s also a call for submissions for Issue 2 at the Living in the future website, which you can also check for event details.
