William Hammett, Independent Ghostwriter


Dystopian fiction is a genre that takes place in a state, country, or world that is dysfunctional. It is usually marked by an oppressive political or religious systemóor both. While most of these tales are predictive in nature and serve as cautionary tales about what kind of world may result when mankindís freedoms are curtailed, many take place in the present day.

Frequently, dystopian fiction overlaps with science fiction inasmuch as the plot of these novels unfolds in a world in which societal structures have been twisted or overturned altogether because of advanced mechanization or technology. With the advent of the digital age, for example, dystopian novels about Artificial Intelligence taking over the planet and relegating humans to the status of slaves have been extremely popular.

A few examples of dystopian fiction are as follows:

  • The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood
  • The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
  • Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep (basis for the film Blade Runner) by Philip K. Dick
  • 1984 by George Orwell
  • Lord of the Flies by William Golding
  • A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess
  • Brave New World by Aldous Huxley
  • Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
  • The Trial by Franz Kafka
  • Slaughterhouse Five by Kurt Vonnegut

Dystopian fiction is sought after by publishers large and small. It has always resonated with readers, and the demand for novels written in the genre continues to increase with the publication of books such as Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale, which has been made into an Emmy-winning television show on Hulu.

Getting an agent is tough, and only the most polished, well-written manuscripts stand a chance of being represented given the number of submissions to literary agents. You can increase your chances of getting a great manuscript by hiring an exceptional independent ghostwriter. A company writer just isnít going to cut it.

But here's the bottom line: Most ghostwriters just arenít very good regardless of whether theyíre loosely affiliated with a company or not.

Albert Camus quote

 William Hammett
