Subject: dystopia in current science fiction I suspect that more than one observer of popular culture, especially of science fiction (broadly conceived), has noted that nowadays it tends to be preoccupied not with a distant but a near-term future or alternative present, often with the minimum of technologies that we do not currently have. Charlie Brooker's Black Mirror is a good example. I'd be very grateful for pointers to cultural criticism of this sort.
