I'd like more stories that fictionalize what life will be like in 50, 75, 100, 200, 500, and 1,000 years from now as the climate is changing and life on this planet along with it. Scientists give probabilities but fiction writers can use those to create narratives to help the non-science literate visualize what might happen. I didn't feel that these stories fulfilled that wish.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
The quality of the short stories varied wildly.
It would also help on Audible's part if the chapters were named rather than numbered: it was difficult to navigate around the stories.
What will your next listen be?
Something with a decent narrator.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
He was terrible. Like somewhere between a "text-to-speech" piece of software and a man who has just learned to talk.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
I listened to four or five stories, and only one was half-decent.
Any additional comments?
I only got this for Alan Dean Foster's inclusion, and his story was so-so.
