Has dystopian fiction taken over from paranormal romance?

Benedicte Page at The Bookseller.com says that it has. She writes:

Dystopian fiction has taken over from paranormal romance as the genre du jour for the young adult (YA) market, following the success of Suzanne Collins' The Hunger Game. Simon & Schuster paid six-figures for a YA dystopian trilogy by Andy Fukuda, with Venetia Gosling buying UK and Commonwealth rights, and the first book, The Hunt, due in spring 2012.
She also mentions that time travel stories could be the latest trend. I thought it was an interesting article.


This is a picture of English Bay, I was standing where Denman meets Beach Ave. Not the best picture, it didn't capture the cozy feeling of darkness that sometimes descends on the city around twilight.
