"As much fun as Neal Stephenson's Snow Crash, and as packed with mind-bending ideas." --Tim O'Reilly "Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom is black-comedic sci-fi prophecy on the dangers of surrendering our consensual hallucination to the regime. Fun to read, but difficult to sleep afterwards." --Douglas Rushkoff, author of Cyberia and Media Virus! "Cory Doctorow is one of our best new writers: smart, daring, savvy, entertaining, ambitious, plugged in, and as good a guide to the wired world of the twenty-first century that stretches out before us as you're going to find anywhere." --Gardner Dozois, editor, Asimov's SF
