Spacing Store: Toronto's City Gift Store

Toronto 2033 book

Toronto 2033 is a collection of ten short fiction stories from a wide range of local sci-fi authors. Led by editor Jim Munroe, our authors speculate how the city and its residents will deal with numerous challenges: heat waves and rising lake water, gated neighbourhoods and suspicious neighbours, and memories of a global pandemic that tinge everyday interactions. Digital artist Mathew Borrett brings to life each story with ten remarkable illustrations of a future Toronto.

An additional five digital stories — two podcasts and three short films — will be published on the Toronto2033.com website (set to launch on Nov. 26th).

PRAISE FOR TORONTO 2033

“Toronto can feel like it’s controlled by ‘a bored social science researcher with their thumb on the fast-forward button’ (to quote William Gibson), but when science fiction writers use that high-speed reality to tell futuristic tales, it brings the city into focus: diverse, fraught, endangered, strong. A book for our moment and our city.”
Cory Doctorow, co-editor of Boing Boing, science fiction author

“It made me laugh, it made me think, it made me imagine alternate possibilities. It made me wonder if we don’t need a Department of Speculative Fiction at city hall helping guide the city, alongside the planners and accountants and lawyers.”
Edward Keenan, urban affairs columnist, The Toronto Star
