    "News From Nowhere" centers around the encounter between a visitor from the nineteenth century, William Guest, and a decentralized and humane socialist future without class segregation and with direct democracy without governmental empowerment. Inspired by the work of John Ruskin and Karl Marx; this novel is not only a declaration of egalitarian principles but a great early contribution to the utopian genre. This work could be seen as a kind of utopian counterpart to George Orwell's renowned and deeply pessimistic, dystopian novel 1984.
