"I know many science fiction writers engaged in the cyber-world, but Cory Doctorow is a native....We should all hope and trust that our culture has the guts and moxie to follow this guy. He's got a lot to tell us." -Bruce Sterling
A powerful and funny novel about time, tribalism, and a young man's dismaying discoveries about his own life
"Cory Doctorow is the most interesting new SF writer I've come across in years. He starts out at the point where older SF writers' speculations end."
--Rudy Rucker, author of Spaceland
"Cory Doctorow doesn't just write about the future--I think he lives there."
"Cory Doctorow rocks! Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom is about a world that is visible in its outlines today, if you know where to look, from reputation systems to peer-to-peer ad-hocracies. Doctorow knows where to look."
--Howard Rheingold, author of The Virtual Community and Smart Mobs
"Nicely understated: meringue laced with caffeine."
-Publishers Weekly on Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom
"It's cool, it's hip, and it's fun-but more important, it's about something. Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom is a sleek, tightly written book that, as the best science fiction should, engages with the world."
