Wired's Best Dystopian, Fantasy and Science Fiction Reads

Three lists from Wired.co.uk combined, as there is quite a bit of genre overlap. All three lists were published in 2019. Solid lists, but they don't include YA. I'm glad that unlike most they included Atwood's The Heart Goes Last.
1-11: Dystopian
12-25: Fantasy
26-41: Science Fiction
