As I said in my review last year of his book Pirate Cinema, a Cory Doctorow YA novel is as much a treatise as a story. His latest, Homeland, is no exception.
The “let’s put on a show (in a sewer)” aspect of the underground video scene in Doctorow’s third novel for young adults is fascinating.
Cory Doctorow’s new book The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow forces readers to ask whether they view new technology as mere change or as human progress.
Perry and Lester are two guys living in an abandoned mall outside of Miami. They’re the sort of guys who, to borrow a phrase from the Queen in Alice in Wonderland, can think up six impossible things before breakfast — …
My boys, 14 and 17, belong to a book club whose tastes run heavily towards science fiction. You could almost call it a mother-son book club, since at least one mom (the facilitator, who studied at RPI) and often one …
Recently, novelist and blogger Cory Doctorow announced the release of his new novel, Makers — with a price tag of zero. Makers tells the story of a group of hardware hackers who fall in with microfinancing venture capitalists and reinvent …
The fates seemed to decree that I wouldn’t review Little Brother. First of all, it’s shelved under "young adult" — not an appealing category for me. Second, I was unable to contact Tor Teen’s marketing people to secure a comp copy. Finally, it seemed overhyped. Did people pretend to like the book because they liked […]

Games are to geeks like air is to humans and Star Wars games are no exception. Below is a small sampling of the Star Wars related tabletop games we enjoy and why.
I recently drew up some rules for a homebrew RPG game I could play with my three-year-old son using his ‘Star Wars: Galactic Heroes’ toys as a way to introduce him to tabletop role-playing games.
Insert quarter, press start! Today’s Stack Overflow is all about videogames—they’ve long since left behind their humble beginnings and are now a multi-billion dollar industry with opening weekends that leave movies in the dust. So it’s no wonder they inspire a lot of writing.
Continuing on my not-a-year-end-list series… most of the books I read are fiction, whether they’re comics, adult fiction, picture books, stories I’m reading to my kids. I always have big plans to read more non-fiction, but it just doesn’t happen quite as much. Still, there are a lot of books that teach you something, and you can learn from fiction and non-fiction.
