Cinematic dystopias are having a big year. The biggest, in fact, since 2009, when The Road and Terminator: Salvation both warned of a bad future. Now, we have The Hunger Games, which takes place in a US ravaged by some sort of (yes) "apocalyptic" event. Then there's the remake of Judge Dredd called Dredd. Finally, another dystopian remake, of Total Recall, set in a Fascist future where "Euroamerica" and "New Shanghai" vie for global superiority.

And if, as every right-thinking person in Britain hopes, the Kinshasa-born 23-year-old makes a full recovery, I hope that in this Olympic year he is held up not just as an example of sport's capacity for redemption, but as a personification of that much-maligned thing, the immigrant's tale.

They might be known for their gothic romances, but the Brontë sisters also created some of the earliest examples of science fiction. When Charlotte, Emily, Anne and their brother Branwell were as young as 10, they wrote stories set in detailed, imaginary worlds. Now these little-known fantasy stories are being exhibited in the British Library's first sci-fi exhibition.

Hotels are not famed for their highbrow libraries; if you're lucky, you might just find the latest Jackie Collins blockbuster. But this is about to change at the new W London hotel in Leicester Square, where books have been recommended by famous authors, including Bret Easton Ellis.
