eBook (ePub): $1.99
David Manning wrote A Brief History of the Recent Future in the mid 1970s with the idea of satirizing the present by forecasting the most bizarre imaginable future. The result was a "verbally... More > animated cartoon" tracing the evolution of an apocalyptic conflict between proponents of ganic garbage vs those advocating ficial garbage as civilization's final energy resource. Along the way, the tale introduces such absurdities as a credit-system economy; the Bronx Sanitation Air Force; a 3,000-acre rubber-raft island named Carabia; a news toaster that burns headlines onto breakfast bread; and people metabolically transformed by Mango Tango, the core building block of the artificial ecosystem. Resurrected from the past, the book remains, after 35-plus years, a satiric fantasy, now looking back at the odd events nobody knows transpired but brought us to our increasingly dystopian state. Once the harbinger of a future too ridiculous to contemplate, the original bizarre predictions resonate more every day.< Less
