Charles Stross' Laundry Files is one of the best and best-loved sci-fi series running (and a personal favourite). His upcoming instalment, The Delirium Brief, not only begins with the titular secret occult-protection organisation being dragged into the public eye -- spoiler: Everyone is very upset -- but brings back beloved narrator/protagonist/unwilling executive/Eater of Souls Bob Howard, too!

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
