The World to Come
StoriesBook - 2014
In 1738, English preacher, Isaac Watts wrote 'The world to come', a Christian tract about departed souls, death, and the glory or terror of the resurrection. Almost 300 years later the world to come still fascinates readers. It's not only climate change, it's the climate of everything: from technological 'advances' that threaten to create an immortal humanity; to an endless 'war on terror,' which means that, though we may never know war, nor will we ever truly know peace; to a thousand visions of post-Apocalyptic life in the media. The world to come is everywhere; it is with us now... In this anthology, twenty-one writers respond to the world to come - the one just around the corner, the hereafter and the everywhen. The World To Come is a truly international publication. Edited by Om Dwivedi (India) and Patrick West (Australia), it features talented new voices as well as established literary stars such as John Fulton (USA), Eunice Ngongkum (Africa), Dirk Strasser (Australia), Tabish Khair (India), Leone Ross (Jamaica), Tim Richards (Australia), Se..bastien Doubinsky (France), John Shulman (India), Craig Cormick (Australia), Leah Swann (Australia) and First Nation writer, Marcus Waters.
