An honourable mention

John Brunner
Stanley Kubrick

John Brunner’s 1969 ‘Stand on Zanzibar’ ranks alongside 1984 in its ability to predict the future, although this time the focus is more on electric driverless cars rather than doublespeak. A shout out too to Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey, which gives a nod to the iPad.
