"New writers bring vision.
The writers of the eighties changed us all, quite often against our will."
--FROM ORSON SCOTT CARD'S INTRODUCTION TO FUTURE ON FIRE
'Future on Fire is the first volume in a series that will collect representative stories from those who are, in my judgement, the major short fiction writers of the eighties.
"I don't put these stories forward as a personal list-- my favorite stories for the eighties... I hated some of these stories. But I hated them for the right reasons. They made me think. They made me feel. They made me remember. They changed me. And I dare to believe they'll change you, too...
"Read them for the power and joy of living in the worlds these writers have created.
"They have returned from the flames of the futures that live in their imaginations -- come near the fire now and singe yourself."
