Mithila Review is inviting submissions for a special global Hopepunk issue of science fiction (and fantasy) devoted to positive and powerful character-driven stories that imagine an open and inclusive tech-empowered democratic future for all people, species and countries on Earth.
We bring to you this issue so we may confront what Shakespeare described as our “mountainish inhumanity” as we come face-to-face with aliens and strangers in the stories and poems that are to follow.
We are now expanding the editorial team of Mithila Review with new minds and voices to continue to work towards our vision of a better world.
I’m very excited and honored to release Issue 14 of Mithila Review.
In an ideal world, everybody will be healthy. There will be no need for a doctor in a future world where bodies can be replaced, limbs and organs regenerated. Where every home, every transport vessel is equipped with AI medical bots and sickbays, there is no requirement for a hospital—every home, every vehicle can serve as hospitals in case of emergencies. While the Star Trek future is still far, we are on the verge of a medical, biotechnological revolution right now.
The best of science fiction and fantasy is a balm to our wounded soul — our dream to reach the stars, become a caring and responsible star-faring civilization. And it wouldn’t be possible for me to indulge in this fantastic endeavor without your generous contribution and support.
