The new 'it' genre is Dystopian/Post-Apocalyptic, lighting a nuc under Vampires and Zombies

Replacing the Vampire craze that has inundated the YA and fiction world the past few years is Dystopia. The idea that real life catastrophes could happen to everyday people (like the end of life as we know it) is a far more frightening 'reality', with so many more avenues for self discovery than Vampires and monsters, and teens are starting to pick up on that vibe. Look at what's hot right now, The Hunger Games Trilogy, The Passage, The Judas Syndrome Trilogy, new books like Jeyn Roberts recently penned Dark Inside, which was just picked up by McMillan press in the UK. It's obvious where the world psyche lies right now. Dystopian themes are exploding onto the scene and most are driven by an apocalyptic event. Sure, this genre has ruled over the science fiction world in the past, but has matured and grown into a seperate genre with a dedicated following. Look into these top picks while you still have the chance. Because if the universal mind is bent on Dystopia, you might want to learn a thing or two before the end comes.
