Do you want to explore that place of terror and wonder called Dystopia? Do you want to probe the dark depths of Metropolis, Brave New World, Nineteen Eighty-four, Blade Runner, Neuromancer and their likes? 

Then EXPLORING DYSTOPIA is your site! Now, grab your fedora, piece and bottle and take a walk on the rain wet asphalt of Dystopia. Check out the neon streets, the art deco architecture, the jazz joints...

You better watch your step, though. Thought cops, Blade Runners and Turing heat lurk in every corner. Tragedy is never far away in Dystopia...



   Will there be dark days ahead?
   Have we been warned?
