Top 10 novels that predicted the future

At the Guardian, Andrew Crumey listed the top ten novels that predicted the future.

One book on the list:
Mary Shelley: Frankenstein (1818)

Real-life re-animation experiments were all the rage and gave Shelley the idea for her novel, but as creator of the original "Frankenstein science" she became unwitting godmother of everything from heart transplants to GM foods.
Read about all ten titles on the list.
