Description

An anthology of speculative short fiction imagining the possibilities of our food insecure future.

Our lives, our culture, our community all start with and revolve around what we eat, and how we eat it. Sharing meals with family and friends has been a hallmark of human society from our earliest beginnings. But we are entering an era of unprecedented change. Climate, technology, the global spread of crop diseases, droughts, and the loss of pollinators threaten to change not only how much food we eat, but what we eat and how we eat it.

Devouring Tomorrow explores this strange new menu through the eyes and palates of some of Canada’s most exciting authors. See a world with no bees left to pollinate our crops. Encounter lab-grown meat so advanced that it becomes alive. Visit a land where diseases wipe out a common fruit and the society of a nation changes around its loss. This is not the world of the distant future, this is tomorrow.
