Holograms are all the rage these days. I guess Princess Leia was ahead of the curve.

Though seeing your favorite dead writers duke it out via hologram, should not be on your list of worries.

But it would be nice to hear a good prediction from someone in the know for the future of writing.

Maybe everyone in publishing should just listen to Louis C.K. when it comes to book distribution.

Or perhaps audio books will make a triumphant come back and save us all.

People might read more if we updated the classics with modern-day slang, home skillet.

Or the answer might lie in literary power couples, who could team up to write books of awe-inspiring depth.

But until we find an answer, we can fin comfort in the fact that there will soon be a slurpee on every corner.
