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.

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