Collection: We Welcome Robots: 5 Books to Prepare You For a Very Sci-Fi Future

We unearth five books offering the science behind mind-boggling concepts from your favorite science fiction and show why they’re not as far off as we think.


We’ve plumbed the oceans and dabble ever deeper in space. Scientists are now beginning to explore the wild frontier of the human mind and the intricate pathways of the genome. But before any exploration of these new frontiers began, people like Jules Verne and Mary Shelley imagined them—sometimes in ways more fantastical than others. Today, the future of space exploration and artificial intelligence is omnipresent in series and film, and it can all seem quite far removed from reality. But think again: here, we unearth five books that offer the science behind mind-boggling concepts from your favorite science fiction—and show why they’re not quite as far off as we think.
