16 of the Greatest Dystopian Books of All Time

March 12, 2010

“Dystopian novels—stories of the horrific future—are so common as to be almost forgettable. Here is a compilation of what I believe are the 16 greatest of the genre. I could happily list twice as many that are amazing, but these are the best. From the post-apocalyptic wasteland to deadly viruses to social malaise, all possible bad futures end here.”



I’ve only read 8 of 16, I better get to work!

Not included on the list, though should have been: THE STAND by Stephen King,the MONSTER TRILOGY of David Wellington, MOCKINGBIRD by Walter Tevis,  and SWAN SONG by Robert McCammon. What are a few of your favorites?
