Description

The breakdown of society, or its perversion into a nightmare hidden beneath the façade of perfection or farce, is nothing new.

Classic writers from Mary Shelley (The Last Man) to Jack London (The Scarlet Plague) extrapolate the fissures and faults in society and how they might metastasize in the face of global outbreaks, natural disasters, or economic collapse. Issues that resonate eerily for today.

Writers such as Yevgeny Zamyatin (We), Samuel Butler (Erewhon), Jack London (The Iron Heel), even Jonathan Swift (Gulliver's Travels) warn us through the genre of science fiction or satire that the proposed solutions, post crisis, can pose horrifying perils of their own as societies overreach or overcompensate in an effort to avoid further trauma.

Never have these classic treasures been more relevant than now.
