Classic Lit Plots Most Likely to Happen in 2018

HBO/Girls

Frankenstein by Mary Shelley

Mary Shelley is criminally undervalued for her ability to predict the future. That future—it’s here. Cloning is real. Dolly the sheep was cloned way back in 1996. Are you seriously gonna tell me that we haven’t figured out human cloning in a military lab somewhere? Wake up! 2018 is definitely gonna be the year this goes mainstream. It probably won’t be a lone scientist like Shelley described, nor one single creature struggling with what it means to be alive.  Instead, I predict some evil corporation will use this technology to make an infinite number of efficient, expendable, replaceable employees to serve us coffee with biologically programmed, unsettling smiles. The future is bright, my dears!
