0wnz0red is one of the best-known stories in this book, but it’s not available on this site. That’s because the story was originally published on Salon, and it’s still available there. Enjoy!
By the way, this story has made the preliminary 2003 Nebula ballot. That means that it will be presented to the members of the Science Fiction Writers of America as a candidate for the final award ballot. Cross your fingers!

Cyberpunk isn’t dead. It has just lost some of its more superficial, passÃ© punkishness (the leather jackets and the mirrorshades) and continues to evolve, rather than settling into the wax museum of old trends. The greatest challenge may be generational. Where Gibson and his fellows served as pioneers back in the 20th century, the real world is catching up and this century’s cybernauts feel far more at home in the territory. But what IS “home” in a time of accelerating change and strangeness? In his first collection A PLACE SO FOREIGN AND EIGHT MORE, Cory Doctorow pursues that question through the wild twists and turns of past, present and future, equipped with the literary tools to make it matter.
