Surprise! In 1516 Thomas More invented utopia. His 40,000-word fiction, Utopia, describes an idyllic place. He combined two Greek words, ou (not) and topos (place). More wrote the satire in Latin, and that's about 160 pages, double-spaced. What a guy! In college I read B.F. Skinner's novel, Walden Two, a utopian society no one would want to visit. I suppose now it would be called dystopian.
