XPRIZE’s Seat 14C is a digital anthology whose stories follow characters on board a flight from Tokyo to San Francisco. The concept: not far from the West Coast, the plane passes through a time-wrinkle and jumps 20 years into the future, touching down in a near-utopian 2037.

Writers involved include Paolo Bacigalupi, Madeline Ashby and Karl Schroeder – but there’s also an opportunity for someone out there to bag a $10,000 prize package by filling Seat 14C with their own take on the world 20 years from now. 

My contribution is ‘Eighty-niner’, about a passenger called Molly, a vintage Camaro, and a strange island forest. Its beautiful story art was created by Ashley Mackenzie.
