The Third Millennium

Third Millennium -- 1988 UK pb cover

The Third Millennium: A History of the World AD 2000-3000 by Brian Stableford and David Langford began as a Stableford work of futurology with a biological and sociological emphasis, to which Langford contributed chapters of related speculation about physics and technology. Stableford has since based a number of short stories (many collected as Sexual Chemistry) and a novel series on the theme of "emortality" life extension through gene engineering, which emerged as an important strand of this book.

I haven't included a first-edition cover here since it featured a dinky little hologram that doesn't reproduce well, or indeed at all, as a digital scan.
