Dear Stephen,

Pearce spends considerable time in his thesis discussing the harm that "Brave New World" has done to Utopian causes. I rather suspect that Huxley would not have been disapproving, given his libertarian sympathies and fondness for hallucinogens in his later work. Orwell is completely different; there's nothing even superficially pleasant about his dystopian vision. The others I would have to look up; do you mean Frank "Dune" Herbert or another Frank Herbert?

Frank "Dune" Herbert, particularly, The Maker of Dune:

Pearce's thesis is freely available on his website, and it really is very well written, addressing just about every possible objection before you think of it.

   Excellent, I will look for it.
