Dystopian Fantasy for Our Cultural Moment

It seems like hardly a month goes by without hearing that dystopian literature is trending, or it’s making a comeback, or that a certain classic dystopian novel is selling inordinately well for an octogenarian book. One thing’s for certain—whether you call it dystopian fantasy, YA, or dystopian novels—these stories are here to stay.

Some would say we’re in the golden age of dystopian fiction—probably because many readers turn to books either to understand or escape the dystopia around them.
