Title: To The Future And Back Again

School: Moyle Park College, Clondalkin, Dublin 22

Publication: May 2020

Foreword by: Oisín McGann

From the Foreword: ‘Science fiction questions. It wants to know. And in doing so, it is less a means of predicting our future than it is a lens through which we examine our world and our lives as they are now, slightly removed from reality, for the sake of some clarity and objectivity. It is a genre that imagines the discovery of an unknown virus in our veins, a demonstration of our unavoidable

mortality, or the spacecraft we use to take us into orbit, so that we can look back at, and appreciate,

the delicate beauty of our planet.”
