Lit rec #135: Tessie Hutchinson was in the center of a cleared space by now, and she held her hands out desperately as the villagers moved in on her. “It isn’t fair,” she said. A stone hit her on the side of the head. (1948)

Hugely influential and stunning to read for the first time.Possibly, the first dystopian short story. “THE LOTTERY” by Shirley Jackson.
