➛ Read part 1 of the opening short story, “My Android.”
After global warming made the Earth’s surface uninhabitable in many geographies, humankind built sophisticated synthetic androids. With their help, they constructed temperature-controlled domes, where most people live by 2110. The question for humanity remains the same, will greed and exploitation by a new power elite endanger the planet’s future? Will asteroids destroy the Earth before technology can be deployed to stop them?
Quotes about Another Tomorrow by Katherine Ann Adams
Another Tomorrow by Katherine Ann Adams is a series of short stories that link together and tell a tale of a near future filled with androids, time travel, planetary destruction and hope for humanity. This novel harkens back to the writings of Isaac Asimov and Arthur C. Clarke in the sense that the science is believable while being told through the actions of characters that a reader can connect with. I found this to be an enjoyable reading experience that made me think about current technologies and how they could possibly affect the human condition.

Adams approaches her view of the future firmly grounded in current times. Parts of today surface in her writing with sometimes delightful and sometimes chilling effects. Technology has unintended consequences when appropriated by the state, an organization which has taken surveillance to a whole new level.
The ‘implant’ is the main source of surveillance, originally developed for use in androids, but is now being implanted in humans, with shocking results. Several state agencies are involved in affecting the lives and deaths of most citizens. Those battling state takeover are Shelby, the daughter of one of the inventors of the implant; an android named Hawk; and a scientist named Toby. In a fast-paced narrative with noir touches, they’re drawn in and fight for right.
Conflict plays out in several areas. Nature versus technology; the Territories versus climate-controlled domes; androids versus humans; state committees who claim to represent the greater good versus personal freedom.
Adams puts a human face on big ideas which are current in today’s society and show what might happen in the future. She does this with great pacing and a sly humor which makes for a great read.

Intriguing and fascinating, Another Tomorrow transports us to other worlds and helps us see more deeply into our own.

Another Tomorrow is about the complexities of relationships rather than a reflection of just one genre. The dialogue was written so conversationally that it made me part of the situation. Wonderful and reassuring glimpse into how a future with technology can still be a world with feelings. Great introduction to science fiction for folks like me who have not been part of that world.
