  1. Just finished “Homeland”. Less than three hours cover to cover; mostly because I couldn’t do anything else until I found out what happened! Loved the stuff from Burning Man, as it is not something I’m likely to ever get to in real life. It did seem though, even though this was set in SF, that a lot of the police/HS/authority responses had the ‘air’ of the type seen in the UK and/or Europe; ‘non-lethal’ but overtly brutal.

    I have at least three people lined up to read it after me (they were so excited when I told them it had arrived today).

    Thank you for telling it like it is.

  5. This book is incredible! My father (who is a pretty savvy fellow) turned me on to Makers at just the right time, and that of course led me down the rabbit hole into your other books.

    The open copyright let me taste-test them for free, and recommend them around. I was totally floored by Little Brother – had one of those No! Sleep! Till Brooklyn! epic reading sessions, and then couldn’t stop recommending it. I still haven’t.

    And Homeland (I’m halfway through right now) seems to be even better, if that’s possible. Not only is it a great, electrifying/terrifying read, it’s also marvelously informative and prescient. Oh, and full of helpful little gems! I keep highlighting and bookmarking all of these little sections full of super-useful information about security, cold-brewed coffee, open Android distros, etc.

    Long story short, I’m at the “Boo-yah!” break right now, and finally tearing myself away long enough to grab a fairly-securely-connected laptop and buy some copies for the local libraries and my co-working space (Mojo Coworking, in Asheville, NC – it’s awesome.)

    I love what you’re doing, Cory. Thanks and gratitude beyond words. I hope your tours bring you through Asheville some time soon, and if there’s any way I can help with that, do let me know.

  7. Homeland was awesome!

    One question: will there be a sequel?

    Comment by Chris — March 17, 2013 @ 4:05 pm

  8. Yes, there’s a novella that the White House Office of Technology will publish later this spring. It’s called “Lawful Interception.”

  9. Is there a teacher tutorial to Homeland? Are there any plans of making one – to help teachers all over the globe to work with this fantastic book? Thanks for the book BTW.

  11. Thank you very much – will use it! hopefully in an UNESCO-project on Media and Information Literacy and with Swedish teachers.

  12. This novel is amazing. I’ve made it about half way through and the events are so plausible and realistic that I’ve had to remind myself several times that it is a work of fiction… or is it? Thank you, Cory Doctorow.

  13. Aw, thanks!

  14. I read Little Brother for a Social Media Ethics class at the New School. So when my uber tech savvy tween daughter was looking for her next book to read, I was able to suggest it. She loved it so much and will be thrilled that “Homeland” is the sequel. Thanks Cory! Keep em’ coming!

  15. That’s wonderful, Anissa! Hope your daughter likes it!

  16. I stayed up countless nights reading Homeland till I could no longer keep my eyelids open, and even then I did not want to put it down because it was just such an amazing piece of work. Thanks a bunch Cory! I can’t wait for Lawful Interception which I’m sure will be just as awe-inspiring as it’s predecessors. Keep up the superb work!

  17. Thank you, Alex!

  18. Hey Cory!
    I loved this book, along with pretty much every single one of your other books, but I’m curious; will we see Lawful Intercept on Craphound? From the little bit I read on Amazon, it seems amazing, but I’m your standard time-rich, cash-poor high school student, therefore incapable of purchasing anything.

  21. Hey there Cory, Love your books, read Little Brother and Homeland, I’m about the same age as “Marcus”, so I can really connect. I was wondering if you’re working on any more novels around the Tales of Marcus and Angie. I’ve read Lawful Intercept on TOR, but I’d really like to see another good book with those characters. Also, i’m learning Python and Java, I’ve known HTML for a long time now. Any advice as to how I can make learning to code a bit less painless?

    Thanks in Advanced,

  22. Thanks for writing, Josh! Nothing’s planned as yet, but nothing’s impossible, either.
    For coding — try CodeAcademy?
