William Gibson 2014. He introduces the idea of a drawn out apocalypse- 'the Jackpot' starting sometime mid 21st century with the two narratives set either side of it. Doesn't explicitly reference peak oil but is very much there alongside climate change (as it was all the way back in Neuromancer). Definitely a lot of 'meta news' exploration too, from the man who foresaw reality TV all those years ago.

Definitely worth a read, if a bit grim in its overall premise.

I certainly loved the Neuromancer. I'm going to give this a try too. I don't mind a grim story actually. In fact, I prefer grim themes for some reason.

Welcome, do please tell us a little more about yourself so that we know that you are not here to advertise films/TV shows or indeed anything else.
