Essential Dystopian Fiction (Vol. 2)

A Listmania! list by John Joseph Adams (New Jersey)
The list author says: "The list author says: "What follows is a selected bibliography of noteworthy Dystopian and Utopian fiction. Dystopia and Utopia are often considered to be opposing sides of a coin, but perhaps the two lie closer than one might at first suspect. Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four, for instance, may have ended badly for Winston Smith, but Inner Party loyalist O’Brien undoubtedly got a promotion for bringing such a dangerous radical as Smith to justice.

This "for further reading" list appears in my dystopian fiction anthology BRAVE NEW WORLDS. The list was compiled by Ross E. Lockhart.""
