Science Fiction: Utopian/Dystopian

Utopian/Dystopian

Utopian and Dystopian novels are a quickly growing subclass of the Science Fiction and Speculative Novels genres. Utopian novels feature a perfected society with little to no wrong doings while the subgenre of Dystopian novels features the opposite with the underscored problems of such perfected societies. Before 1900, there were over 400 Utopian novels published in the English Language alone and this subgenre has only grown in popularity since then.
