  1. Brilliant!

    I laughed my ass off while thinking "who the fuck is this guy"!

    You'll be pleased/(and perhaps)surprised to know that I caved in and decided to wander the isles of Chapters where the only book that caught my eye was "Eastern Standard Tribe", for which I happily plonked down my Interac card (I hadn't expected to find anything worth my time in the dismal isles of what was once the Runnymede theater).

    It was worth every penny and then-some.

    Keep writing 'em, I'll keep buying!

  2. Hey Cory,

    I read EST a couple of years ago, thought there were some very interesting ideas coming out of it, and I remember you blogging about how some of the ideas are coming to pass, and was wondering if you've seen this article:

    I've not got a NS subscription, so have not read the whole thing, but I thought it was interesting to see this idea coming out after EST...

  3. Hey Cory, thanks for the email earlier ;) Not everyday you get to email an established science fiction author, much less one I am still in regular communication with, like you are :)

    I'm gonna spend some time working on translating a few of your short stories into Russian, it will take some time as the Russian language doesn't have Russian equivalents for many english words and terms. But I'll try my best, you should be able to have your novels and short stories available in multiple languages, right?

  4. Just read EST, my second Doctorow if you count "I, Row-Boat", and my first ebook (proving that yes, I can read books on a screen after all). The screen was a nokia n800, the closest physical device I can think of ot the comms in EST (by coincidence). A good piece of fun, thanks!

  5. Hi Cory, just finished reading your book and by coincidence I came across this article: http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/uk/crime/article1847697.ece
    Excerpt: The unit, staffed by police and psychiatrists, will have the power to detain suspects indefinitely using mental health laws.
    It's not the main theme in your book but reminds me of Art in sanatorium.

  7. I just read the .txt version of this from end to end and got an uncontrollable urge to tell the world that I fucking loved it. I literally didn't move an inch the entire time. Must have been sat scrolling down all bloody morning.
