Last night, Locus Magazine held its annual Locus Awards Ceremony in Seattle, the winners include several of my favorite books of the year — and my novella, “After the Siege” — which was collected in my short story collection Overclocked and adapted for comics in my new collection Cory Doctorow’s Futuristic Tales of the Here and Now“. (The story’s first publication was in the Russian magazine Esli, and the translation is also downloadable).
Many thanks to all who voted for this story, to Eileen Gunn for publishing the story and accepting the award on my behalf, and especially to my grandmother, Valentina Rachman, for sharing her stories of life as a child-soldier in the civil defense corps during the Siege of Leningrad.

Overclocked: Stories of the Future Present is really good story telling, good extrapolation on present trends. My sysadmins should check out the first story, “When Sysadmins Ruled the Earth”.
