Five Science Fiction Universes It Would Be Cool To Live In

1. Kim Stanley Robinson’s Green Mars.
Provided I’m not one of the unfortunates living on Earth.
2. Iain Banks’ The Culture
A post-scarcity “economy” on an interstellar scale seems like an interesting environs.
3. Brin’s Uplift Universe
Yeah, humanity is surrounded, outgunned, outnumbered and outmaneuvered. But uplift, man. Uplift.
4. Futurama
Because no universe is functionally complete without Bender Bending Rodriguez.
5. Westerfeld’s Leviathan universe.
A world which is divided between Darwinists (biotech) and Clankers (mechanically-oriented) seems like an interesting place.
