The Evolution of World's End: an interview on dystopian fiction

Pop over to the Academia blog to read an interview with yours truly about dystopian fiction, and my recently released novel, Wild Children:

"I believe that, though literary trends may fluctuate, and though many will argue that no dystopian novel can equal the scary reality of today’s world, dystopian fiction will always have a place, because it enables us to play out horror scenarios and deal with the worst in the safety of our imagination. It’s like a kid making up stories about monsters under his bed, and being comforted by knowing it’s just a story. Dystopia allows us to ask ourselves, “what’s the worst thing that could happen, and how would we deal with it?”
