Books about other worlds are rarely just about other worlds. Science fiction sketches possible futures for humanity, and fantasy imagines parallel universes that resonate with our reality, no matter how divergent the details. A zombie plague and a merchant-dominated city-state each say something about capitalism. Robots and alien creatures make us ponder what it means to be human. And throughout, vivid, strange characters struggle with lives that feel powerfully real, as impossible as they may be.
