Generation A by Douglas Coupland

Modeled after the same style as Coupland’s seminal
Generation X, where the lives of seemingly disparate character’s intersect, Generation A takes place in the near future.
Like The Year of the Flood, Generation A looks at environmental degradation as it chronicles a world where bees have become extinct.

After the Apocalypse by Maureen F. Hugh

American writer Maurenn F.
McHugh delivers an entire collection on dystopian near future themes in After the Apocalypse. She writes about the world post-bird flu, technology, job outsourcing and just like Atwood she holds a special place for zombies in her heart.

The MaddAddam Trilogy by Margaret Atwood

The Year of the Flood is the second book in this trilogy. You don’t have to read the first book Oryx and Crake to understand The Year of the Flood, you might as well if you enjoyed The Year of the Flood. The Year of the Flood expands on the story set up in Oryx and Crake. The books are set during the same time period, but they each tell the story from a different perspective.
