You should check out Flyboy Action Figure Comes with Gasmask and An Opening Act of Unspeakable Evil by Jim Munroe, one of the founders of Adbusters. They are both fucking awesome and if you’re into kind of social-sci-fi like A Clockwork Orange or 1984, you’d probably like his stuff because he draws on that as an influence but his stories are at heart personal stories about human relationships, with the sci-fi-ish stuff as a background. He self-publishes, so you probably have to get them off Amazon or his website www.nomediakings.org, where you can read some of his short stories if you want a sample. He has two other books, but I haven’t read Angry Young Spaceman yet and Everyone in Silico is interesting in terms of the Philip K. Dick type futurescape he creates, but the stories are kind of weak and don’t really build to anything. He’s honestly one of my favorite writers and it only sucks that due to his subversive indie nature, he doesn’t get as much accolades as he deserves.
Oh by the way, 1984 isn’t really worth the hype, for all it’s known as a classic the character work is shoddy and about half the book is an unending and drab text on the history and political landscape of the world in 1984. Animal Farm is a much more concise social satire while still having a coherent story line.
