The Iron Heel
Jack London’s dystopian novel The Iron Heel posits a futuristic world in which the division between the classes has deepened, creating a menacing oligarchy that rules through terror.

Much of the narrative is set in the San Francisco Bay Area, including events in San Francisco and Sonoma County.
