    Define "popular."

    They are the type most young and inexperienced writers go for because they think it makes them look deep and worldly.

    "Look at me sitting in e coffee house on my laptop all warm and cozy writing about how terrible the world is. "

      Really? So Orwell or George R. Stewart or Huxley were just hacks sipping lattes as they scribbled?

    And why you go back in time and sell it before Trump became President you would really have something there.

    Or maybe you could try Trump becoming President of the United Nations

    There are thousands of such books, most likely tens of thousands.

    The only thing recent about this "fad" is insisting they be called "dystopian," which primarily seems to have come out of YA novels in the last ten years.

      Your historical perspective is sadly lacking. Dystopian novels have been around for many decades

    There are many such books on Kindle, I like some that actually move quickly and are based on some rational assumptions. It has nothing to do with who is president, at least for me.

    Historically speaking, people like the opposite of what they're living. People who feel happy and secure like dystopian novels because it's so far from their experience. During times of crisis and uncertainty, people prefer more upbeat and escapist fare, because it takes them away from their lives. This is why there hasn't been much success with dystopian novels in the Trump era - fiction can't compete with the horror of our reality.

    Don't write a book. You misspelled dystopia and based. You missed "the" between "on" and "last". You were too lazy to spell out "three". You should have used "with" Trump instead of "as" Trump. You failed to capitalize Trump or President.
