It seems like a lot of dystopic fiction has been cropping up lately. At least, over the past five to ten years I’ve noticed this trend. And this trend is probably due to the fact that it’s starting to feel like we live in an actual dystopic reality most of the time nowadays… But that’s an inquiry to entertain some other day.
Today, I’m wondering: Why is some dystopic fiction better than other dystopic fiction? Are there any key elements dystopic fiction must contain if a writer is serious about writing better dystopic fiction?(more…)
