about

Brave New Worlds collects the best tales of totalitarian menace by some of today''s most visionary writers, including Neil Gaiman, Paolo Bacigalupi, Orson Scott Card, Kim Stanley Robinson, Kurt Vonnegut, Jr., Ken Liu, Shirley, Jackson, and Ursula K. Le Guin.

What happens when civilization invades and dictates every aspect of your life? From 1984 to The Handmaid''s Tale, from Children of Men to Bioshock, the dystopian imagination has been a vital and gripping cautionary force.

You are being watched. Your every movement is being tracked, your every word recorded. Your spouse may be an informer, your children may be listening at your door, your best friend may be a member of the secret police. You are alone among thousands, among great crowds of the brainwashed, the well-behaved, the loyal. Productivity has never been higher, the media blares, and the army is ever triumphant. One wrong move, one slip-up, and you may find yourself disappeared -- swallowed up by a monstrous bureaucracy, vanished into a shadowy labyrinth of interrogation chambers, show trials, and secret prisons from which no one ever escapes. Welcome to the world of the dystopia, a world of government and society gone horribly, nightmarishly wrong.

When the government wields its power against its own people, every citizen becomes an enemy of the state. Will you fight the system, or be ground to dust beneath the boot of tyranny?
