Everything in my September 2021 Culture Carton!
A rediscovered classic of science fiction, set in a dystopian twenty-second-century society where the winner takes all, a precursor to The Hunger Games by one of the genre’s first major female writers—with an introduction by Naomi Alderman, New York Times bestselling author of The Power and Disobedience
Philadelphia, 1918: Three friends—brave, confident Viola Trenmore, clever but shy Robert Drayton, and Viola’s strong and hot-tempered brother, Terry—discover a mysterious powder that transports them two hundred years into the future. The Philadelphia of 2118 is no longer a bustling metropolis but instead a completely isolated city recovering from an unknown disaster. Citizens are issued identification tags instead of having names, and society is split between a wealthy, powerful minority and a downtrodden lower class. The position of supreme authority is held by a woman, and once a year she oversees competitions to the death to determine who rules alongside her. When Viola, Terry, and Robert are forced to take part in these strange and deadly games, it will take their combined wits for them to escape this strange world and return home.
Equal parts adventure and dystopia, The Heads of Cerberus is an unjustly forgotten work of early science fiction written by a trailblazing master of the genre.
The story is about a group of friends who discovered a mysterious powder capable of sending them 200 years in the future. They where transported in Philadelphia only to find out that it is no longer a bustling metropolis but instead a completely isolated city recovering from an unknown disaster. The friends eventually participated in the weird and deadly games in hope of finding their way back to their time and home.
This is an excellent book for readers who love dystopian fiction! What makes it more interesting is that the novel was actually written in 1918, more than a hundred years ago.

This month’s featured book also didn’t disappoint. It’s a classic novel written in 1918 and a great take on dystopian fiction. It was a bit dark, but it didn’t stop me from devouring the book.
