Stop the Dystopia, I Want to Get On.
The article I wrote for the Spring 2020 edition of the British Science Fiction Association magazine Focus is now available on Medium.
It starts with the question: “Is it true that dystopias predict doom-laden futures and utopias inspire better futures?”
It ends with a quote from Laurie Penny: “Right now, the future seems dark and frightening and it is precisely now that we must continue to imagine other worlds and then plot ways to get there.”
What comes in between can be found here.
