    Five incredible literary dystopias you may not have heard of

    By Anthony Trevelyan

    Five incredible literary dystopias you may not have heard of It would be misleading to say that my new novel, Claudia, is a dystopia – most of it isn’t, though some of it is – but while I was working on the book I found myself reading heavily in the genre, which has always been a favourite of mine. Mind you, dystopia is probably a favourite genre of nearly everyone’s these days (have you seen these days?), and so it’s slightly dismaying that even now we tend to get the same familiar titles cropping up in lists of recommended dystopic reading. Here, then, I have assembled five literary counterworlds that I want to assure you are absolutely fantastic while perhaps being not quite so grindingly obvious as your Nineteen Eighty-Fours, your Brave New Worlds, even (post-Emmys) your Handmaid’s Tales. See what you think… MORE

    5 Books To Read When You’re Missing Black Mirror

    By Sam Bradbury

    5 Books To Read When You’re Missing Black Mirror I don’t know about you, but my least favourite thing about Black Mirror is that there aren’t more episodes. The show is utterly brilliant, mind-blowingly fascinating, and completely unique (if sometimes also bleak and emotionally draining). There’s nothing I can do about the fact that you want more Black Mirror (I’m sorry, I only get a limited amount of uses from my time machine before I rip a hole in the universe and there are a lot of movies I simply can’t wait see in the next few years). What I can do however is recommend 5 books that are perfect to tide you over until the release date of the next season. MORE
