Wired Debuts First Fiction Issue

"We live in uncertain times."

Screen Shot 2016-12-13 at 9.34.18 AMWired’s January edition is its first-ever dedicated entirely to science fiction.

The issue features 14 stories from the minds of N.K. Jemisin, Charles Yu, Charlie Jane Anders and more.

In his monthly editor’s letter, Scott Dadich said a fiction issue made sense because “We live in uncertain times.”

“One of this publication’s most important jobs is to see the big trends, spot important business models, and chronicle landmark innovations that show us where we’re going,” continued Dadich. “But right now, that is hard to do. In this rapidly changing, aggressively agitated moment, it’s very difficult to discern what the future holds. So we decided to consider things a little more obliquely. Sometimes to get a clearer sense of reality, you have to take some time to dream.”
