Dystopian stories strike fear in a reader when they begin to see signs of a terrifying future in their own present. It is a dark and unsettling wake-up call to look at the world we live in and really live in it, before we too fall by the wayside. If you’d like to learn about the characteristic of a typical dystopian short story, please read the sample we prepare – Machinations by Shira Hereld – accompanied with an expert commentary.

“I would also suggest that any aspiring writer begin with short stories. These days, I meet far too many young writers who try to start off with a novel right off, or a trilogy, or even a nine-book series. That’s like starting in at rock climbing by tackling Mt. Everest. Short stories help you learn your craft.”
– George R.R. Martin
