Prophets of the future are being ostracised from the canon. Is this reluctuance to accept speculation in the arts a symptom of decline, as we no longer wish to imagine new possibilities for culture and our lives? Or is fantasising about the future a childish past-time which avoids real engagement with human nature?

Fantastical novelists Nick Harkaway and Justina Robson and Henrietta L. Moore imagine a brave new world.
