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.

“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
