Stand on Zanzibar

by John Brunner


Stand on Zanzibar

One of the best books by one of my favorite authors. As a dystopic New Wave novel, it has nearly all the elements that I associate with the Cyberpunk movement with an amazingly realized near-future world, complex geopolitics and new technologies that feel like they’re right around the corner. There’s a reason it won the 1968 Hugo Award for best novel.

Rating: ★★★★½
