handmaid's tale I think could go ... maybe right in the center, actually - surveillance dystopia is maybe not quite right for it, but there's definitely eugenics & climate disaster. (I haven't read it in a very long time, but I read it at ~12 & some of it is etched in my psyche).

1. Thank you! 2. I think all the sociologists I like are big sci-fi nerds. Or at least there's a lot of correlation there. 3. (I'm just ignoring the 2018 in the center for my sanity for now.)

I did not forget, I ignored. bc I am a sociologist, so I care much less about potential alien invasion or meteors than the above.
