I don’t know about you guys, but I’m getting pretty excited for the upcoming ‘Ready Player One’ movie adaptation! It’s out on March 29th, and if you haven’t seen the trailers, here’s the latest one:
As the book is a pretty cool mashup of futuristic VR sci-fi and 1980s nostalgia, it got me thinking about great sci-fi that was actually written in that decade - so I gathered together a list of Hugo Award Winners from the decade. But I’m curious which '80s-esque sci-fi books you all love most?
Which books (written in the time, or more recently in this wave of 80s nostalgia) evoke the era for you best? And what is it about them that does it for you?
Also, any recommendations generally for people loving this new wave of Stranger-Things-esque throwbacks? And why do we think this is becoming such a trend at the moment?
That’s alotta questions, phew. Let’s get this throwback disco started!
