All Tomorrows is a science fiction novel written and illustrated by the Turkish artist C. M. Kosemen, under the pen name Nemo Ramjet. It tells the journey of the evolution of human race over the next billion years,[1] counting from the date man colonized the solar system, to their galactic dominance and ultimate disappearance.

Synopsis[edit]

The story starts with the world more or less as it is known in the early 21st century. Then, it describes the colonization of Mars. The Martian society begins as a colony of Earth, but asserts its independence in a war rather similar to the American Revolution. After the war a new human species, the Star People are created. These perfected humans colonize the entire Solar Systems and many others, but are eventually destroyed by the Qu, an insect-like expansionist species who excel at nanotechnology and genetic engineering. The Qu manipulate human DNA and revert the Star People to animal status. Some of the new post-human species eventually evolve sentience again, only to fall prey to sentient machines developed by one of them. The machines are however defeated by the Astromorphs – descendants of Star People who escaped the Qu into interstellar space and developed enormous brains, such as are possible only in a weightless environment. A galactic utopia follows until all the post-human civilizations mysteriously disappear.
