Fascinating Near-Future Science Fiction Books

Science fiction has a bit of a reputation for predicting the future.

Is good science fiction fortune-telling, or is it talented authors following the latest scientific breakthroughs and their own logic and creativity to connect the dots on what will happen next?

Near-future science fiction books feel timely and relevant. Whether it’s predicting advances in technology or the problems of the future, near-future science fiction books explore what is likely be our reality in years to come.

Many contemporary science fiction books explore topics like climate change, cloning, space travel, and virtual reality — things that are already familiar to us and with the potential to profoundly impact the course of the future. These near-future science fiction books explore those topics and more.
