    GEORGE ORWELL WITH A FOREWORD BY THOMAS PYNCHON

    Our favorite science fiction tends to use the future to illuminate and discuss issues in our present. 1984 is a prime example of this, a dystopian novel where our culture has become the victim of government surveillance and public manipulation. An important read for any age.

    CHARLIE JANE ANDERS

    This book has it all: witches, mad scientists, a doomsday device, and a school of magic. The world is falling apart, and two friends, Patricia and Laurence, have joined opposing sides in a war of magic vs. science in an attempt to save it. But the choices they make may have dire consequences.

    RICHARD K. MORGAN

    Set in a future where interstellar travel is done by “sleeving” one’s consciousness into new bodies, the story follows a private investigator whose past collides with his present as he attempts to solve a rich man’s murder. A dark and gritty cyberpunk experience. Now a Netflix series!
