The central themes are errand into the wilderness, emancipation from larger powers, individual responsibility, prophecy, apocalyptic scenarios, fundamentalism, artificial intelligence, as well as hybridity, gender roles, psychotic narration, and others. The theoretical basis for this work are both a conventional cultural studies perspective as well as memetics, an evolutionary perspective of culture and literature that is utilized in this volume as an approach to studying genre at the example of the five case studies.
