Marine Corps Future Fiction

March 3rd, 2017

The U.S. Marine Corps has done a lot of work to try and figure out what the world could look like in the near future. That work is detailed in the 2015 Security Environment Forecast. The report is intelligent, insightful, and phenomenally well researched. One problem though, it’s boring! No one is going to read it on their own time. That’s why the Corps came up with the novel idea to host a sci-fi workshop to try and turn their report into short stories.
