#26 – Vonnegut, Adams, and Modern Satire – A Reader's History of Science Fiction
In the New Wave, a new batch of dystopian stories appeared that reflected the newer concerns of the time. These were different from the classics like Nineteen Eighty-Four–more diverse, and very often more hopeful. In this episode, we explore the highlights of these stories.
Short story recommendation: “Harrison Bergeron” by Kurt Vonnegut.
