I love my sci-fi and I love stories set in the near future which are actually about the present. Orwell’s 1984 immediately springs to mind.
One of my favourites is MT Anderson’s Feed. It was written ten years ago and still works. Plus it has a first line that puts it up there with A Tale of Two Cities and Anna Karenina. “We went to the moon to have fun, but the moon turned out to completely suck.”
Here’s something more recent. It’s by students at the Bezaleal academy of arts.
via Empty Kingdom.
And don’t forget. Project glass is scheduled for next year (I think).
