Why dystopian fiction?
It's not something a lot of people understand. "Your favorite science fiction genre is what?" But it's true. For years, I've devoured every book I could find that is either dystopian or post-holocaust. People often assume this is a morbid fascination, and in several ways it is. I do like reading about when things go very wrong in one way or another. My primary interest, however, isn't on what goes wrong. It's about what happens to people in the disaster and how they react.You see the best of people and the worst, and that's what I keep coming back to.
