It’s huge. I mean, something had to replace vampires eventually, right? Susan Collins with her Hunger Games trilogy ensured that the dystopian genre received renewed interest. The good news is that usually this brings out new ideas and interest as other authors are inspired–sometimes driven– to write their story.
One author, Michael J Scott, is posting his dystopian fiction online as he writes it. Michael Scott is an author with six books in print and a new contract for more. You can find him at his WEBSITE.
If you like dystopian fiction (or even if you don’t), hop on over to his website and read the first few chapters of In the Widening Gyre. What I’ve seen looks fascinating.
