HUSH Podcast #110 – A book set in the future

Show Notes

In this episode we imagine the future through the vision of several authors and discuss the appeal of books set in the future. Must all books set in the future be dystopian science fiction? Michelle Stottlemire shares her recommendations to help you find the perfect pick for the “A Book set in the Future” square on your Reading Bingo card. HUSH co-hosts Thad Hartman, Miranda Ericsson and Lissa Staley share their recommendations and plans for completing the Reading Bingo cover-all challenge.
