Putting the Fiction Back in Science: Nature’s “Futures” Short Science Fiction Stories

Beginning with Arthur C Clarke’s short story in 1999, Nature has now published more than 400 short(under a 1000 words more or less) science fiction pieces by some of the most accomplished writers in the field (Norman Spinrad, Gregory Benford) as well as lesser-known luminaries from other fields of endeavor. These are all freely available at this site – Web Focus: Futures – where you can find the latest stories, a podcast, archives, and links. An overview/history of this feature is also available.  For those of us who are SF enthusiasts, this is a delightful weekly treat.
