About the book. . .

Doctorow is the ultimate crossover author, whose sharp writing and commitment to investigating the hot-button political and technological issues of today (and tomorrow) engage YA and adult readers alike. This sequel to Little Brother, a New York Times best-selling and multi-award winning cult favorite, finds Marcus (alias M1K3y) working as webmaster for a reform-minded politician after funds for his college tuition go south with the California economy. Former girlfriend Masha has just palmed him a thumb drive with enough whistle-blowing data about corporate and governmental malfeasance to make Julian Assange blush, but concerns about his employer, his parents, his hacktavist admirers, and the tough guys who seem to be trailing him mean that he’ll move very cautiously.

About the man. . .

Cory Doctorow (craphound.com) is a science fiction novelist, blogger and technology activist. He is the co-editor of the popular weblog Boing Boing (boingboing.net), and a contributor to The Guardian, the New York Times, Publishers Weekly, Wired, and many other newspapers, magazines and websites. He was formerly Director of European Affairs for the Electronic Frontier Foundation (eff.org), a non-profit civil liberties group that defends freedom in technology law, policy, standards and treaties. He is a Visiting Senior Lecturer at Open University (UK) and Scholar in Virtual Residence at the University of Waterloo (Canada); in 2007, he served as the Fulbright Chair at the Annenberg Center for Public Diplomacy at the University of Southern California.

His novels have been translated into dozens of languages and are published by Tor Books and HarperCollins UK and simultaneously released on the Internet under Creative Commons licenses that encourage their re-use and sharing, a move that increases his sales by enlisting his readers to help promote his work. He has won the Locus and Sunburst Awards, and been nominated for the Hugo, Nebula and British Science Fiction Awards. His New York Times Bestseller Little Brother was published in May 2008, a follow-up young adult novel called For the Win was published in 2010.

Little Brother was nominated for the 2008 Hugo, Nebula, Sunburst and Locus Awards. It won the Ontario Library White Pine Award, the Prometheus Award as well as the Indienet Award for bestselling young adult novel in America's top 1000 independent bookstores in 2008.

On February 3, 2008, he became a father. The little girl is called Poesy Emmeline Fibonacci Nautilus Taylor Doctorow, and is a marvel that puts all the works of technology and artifice to shame.
