New Literary Trends:

Scatterpunk: As information technology exceeds our ability to process the world and the computer out-evolves the ape, a dystopian future will evolve that merges the gritty noire of the hard-boiled detective with the bouncy synthetic rhythm of J-Pop. Scatterpunk will include such avante-garde concepts as the fourth-person omniscient narrator and a plot structure that's hierarchical rather than chronological.

Post Modernism: Sophisticated metaphor will be abandoned in favor of a USA-Today-like writing style, where major character conflicts and internal states are broadcast in large, colorful displays. The style's cynical name was bestowed by angry, unemployed literary critics, indicating an approximate intellectual comparison point.

Inhumanism: A response to the increasing industrialization of our culture, Inhumanism seeks to portray the intrinsic ironies of the human condition by giving narrative voice to endtables, yarn, and 1.5 inch square blocks of tofu.
