prisonerofthefreeway asked: i am also a dystopia junkie. can you recommend anything, apart from the classics like Brave New World, 1984, etc.?
Absolutely. These books contain different degrees of dystopia, and span from early 20th century to present day. The nightmares multiply greatly after the mid-1980s for reasons I won’t get into here (neoliberalism); and we seem to have hit saturation point. There’s a definite shift from novels about fascism & communism toward the spectres of consumerism, genetic engineering, media addiction, and environmental disaster.
