Best know for his YA sci-fi novel "Little Brother" (Yes, it's an Orwell reference.), Cory Doctrow is one of the leading lights of a new generation of sci-fi writers. This slim volume includes the title novella, a lecture called "Copyright vs. Creativity," which advocates for open source material, and an interview with Doctrow.

A real mind-bender, like all good science fiction. What would happen if genetic engineering really took over? How about if video gaming became the dominant form of social intercourse? What would become of the future? Excellently imagined speculation combining these questions!
