by Ursula K. Le Guin

This collection of short stories by Ursula K. Le Guin, a master writer of dystopian literature, includes the story “The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas,” which won the Hugo Award in 1974. The tale describes a delightful day in Omelas, a place where people lead impeccable lives, and want for nothing. The city’s state of splendor and bliss however, requires one child be kept in a basement, in eternal filth and agony. This story begs haunting questions of moral sacrifice and utilitarianism, and will leave you with its ghosts for days.

by  Kurt Vonnegut

In the words of The Charlotte Observer, as Random House Publishing cited in 2007, Kurt Vonnegut “strips the flesh from bone and makes you laugh while he does it.” If you’re in the mood for darker comedy, read the work of Vonnegut. “Harrison Bergeron,” one of the stories in the collection, takes place in 2081, in a futurist society where “equality laws” are established to regulate intelligence, athleticism, and beauty. Harrison Bergeron is taken from his parents, George and Hazel, and the narrator follows Harrison’s rebellion on television, while his parents watch.

by Shirley Jackson

In “The Lottery,” the cover story of this collection by Shirley Jackson, a crowd forms in a town square for an annual ritual. We do not discover, until the end of the story, which was published in 1948, the gruesome reason for the large gathering. A powerful meditation on voyeurism, the perpetration of violence, and the diffusion of moral responsibility, this renowned narrative will simultaneously horrify you and leave you pondering its continued significance today.

In the futurist world, books are forbidden and “firemen” have the ironic responsibility of burning any that are discovered. The central character is Guy Montag, a fireman who becomes disillusioned with his job, and resents censoring literature and obliterating knowledge.

by Margaret Atwood
