Re: Books like your wip?
Jules Verne in the 1860's got told by his editor:
"In this piece, there is not a single issue concerning the real future that is properly resolved, no critique that hasnít already been made and remade before. I am surprised at you ... [it is] lacklustre and lifeless."
In this work ("Paris in the Twentieth Century) he predicted:
-Mutal assured destruction
-Calculators & Computers
-A worldwide "telegraphic" communications networks (Internet-ish)
-Electric chairs (criminals "executed by electric charge")
Also, I believe it predicted the soul-numbing boredom of modern work as well.
So he put it in a safe and forgot about it
It eventually got published in 1994 when it became fact, more or less..
