With the recent popularity of Hulu’s adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s “The Handmaid’s Tale”, dystopian fiction has come into the spotlight again. And if you’re wondering where to get your next dystopian fix, Vulture’s article “100 Great Works of Dystopian Fiction” is a great place to start.

To begin with, this is not just any old thrown together list. It’s compiled by two professors of English at Cornell and UCLA, no less, both of whom study dystopian literature. As a result, alongside some of the usual suspects such as 1984 and A Clockwork Orange, there are many more obscure novels.

It’s also nice to see a lot of graphic novels on the list. As well as classics such as Watchmen and The Dark Knight Returns, the list also includes more contemporary titles such as Y – The Last Man and Bitch Planet. Also nice to see an appearance by Judge Dredd, a character set in a brilliant dystopian future that often gets overlooked.

All in all, a list well worth checking out. You can read the full article HERE
