Stupendous! I had a completely rockin' time a Penguicon a couple years back -- it's the perfect mix of geek passions. Plus, Whuffie's about as stable a currency as you're likely to find these days as half a petabuck of toxic debt gets de-leveraged.

There is something fresh about the first novel from Canadian born Bay Area resident Cory Doctorow. Following on from his most obvious predecessor — the one all reviewers will be citing, Bruce Sterling — he has delivered in Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom the kind of science fiction novel that the band They Might Be Giants would have written if they’d OD’d on old cyberpunk novels and back issues of Theme Park Monthly. It’s cool, it’s hip, and it’s fun — but more importantly, it’s about something.
