Post-apocalyptic and dystopian fiction have grown into significant market segments of the e-book market. The dystopian bestseller list on Kindle has improved its average sales rank by as much as 20% over the last two years. It seems that Hulu’s adaptation of The Handmaid’s Tale brought a breath of fresh air to a genre that has been looking for new material following YA-oriented dystopias like The Hunger Games, Divergent, and others. On top, Spielberg’s version of Ready Player One added cyber dystopias to the current mix.

But also post-apocalyptic novels continue to sell very well. From EMP survival stories and deadly viruses to the zombie apocalypse that The Walking Dead has brought to our living rooms for almost 10 years—there are many opportunities to pursue.
