From the ebook:
I don’t know about you, but I spend a lot of time reading about, researching, and speculating on how the future of technology will reshape our world.
These 20 books all look at technology, both modern and not-so-modern, and ask “what if.” The results aren’t always great for the worlds the protagonists inhabit, but that’s the point—sometimes we get so caught up in the potential benefits of new technology that we don’t stop to ask what will go wrong if ill-intentioned, or just plain greedy, people get their hands on it.
Read on to get some recommendations for books, both light-hearted and dead serious, that feature technology as a core component of their storylines.
