ABOUT TORONTO 2033
To celebrate Spacing magazine's 15th anniversary, we decided to look 15 years into the future. Back in December 2003, when we launched Spacing at The 360 on Queen West, we had no idea that our publication would still be thriving 15 years later. When our editors began to compile all of the different changes Toronto has undergone in that time period, we quickly realized that it would much more interesting to look forward than to look back.

The result is Toronto 2033, a collection of ten short fiction stories from a wide range of local sci-fi authors. Led by editor Jim Munroe, our authors speculate how the city and its residents will deal with numerous challenges: heat waves and rising lake water, gated neighbourhoods and suspicious neighbours, and memories of a global pandemic that tinge everyday interactions. Digital artist Mathew Borrett brings to life each story with ten remarkable illustrations of a future Toronto.

An additional five digital stories — two podcasts and three short films — will be published on the Toronto2033.com website (set to launch on Nov. 28th).

AUTHORS: Zainab Amadahy, Madeline Ashby, Al Donato, Kristyn Dunnion, Elyse Friedman, Paul Hong, Elan Mastai, Mari Ramsawakh, Karl Schroeder, Peter Watts

EDITOR: Jim Munroe; ILLUSTRATOR: Mathew Borrett; CREATIVE DIRECTOR: Matthew Blackett
