Sullivan, an Arthur C Clarke Award-winning author of nine science fiction novels and a postgraduate student at the Astrophysics Research Institute in Liverpool, has set her story in London inbut others are placing their dystopias at greater distance. The City of the Sun by Calabrian monk Tommaso Campanella, today represents one of the most important utopian philosophical works. And fiction usually needs conflict to get a plot going. These works are no longer oddities found lurking next to the teen vampire shelves of the bookshop or tucked by the academic essays, they are bathed in full cultural sunlight. So it seems while third-wave feminism continues to trumpet its case and female prime ministers are no longer anomalous, there is a growing thirst for imagined universes in which things work differently, if not better.

Sure, it's a little more parody than it is sci-fi, but Rokeya Sakhawat Hossain's point still stands. Mann and Ursula K. In it, Campanella described the fictional theocratic utopian society that was governed by equality of all its citizens, shared work toward common good, and choosing the wisest for the governing roles. Written over several decades and published 11 years after the authors death, this fully realized utopian world resembles by its size and detail to the Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings. However, while there is a similarity in the patriarchal structure, the characters are very different and the storyline begins to take a different direction several chapters in. We've divvied these themes into five categories, and here are some of our favorite post-eroticapocalyptic worlds.

Different readers have different reactions and so they learn something interesting about themselves. No Thanks, I'm Good. Will men be riding by in Mad Max steam-punk chariots, as their beleaguered wives drag children and sacks of provisions home along dusty tracks? Gold Fame Citrus by Claire Vaye Watkins This is a quieter dystopia about a couple roaming a drought-ridden version of the American West in the near future.
