That's why it was such an honor to have my novel chosen to launch the SciFi Channel's new book club, Sci Fi Essentials. SciFi specifically asked for my book to lead the program with, and we delayed it from March to July to line up with the program's launch. Sci Fi will be promoting the book across its media properties, including the Web site and the magazine.
Thanks, Sci Fi -- and welcome new readers!

Alan, the eldest son of a mountain and a washing machine, refurbishes a house in Toronto, meets an anarchist bent on blanketing the city in free wireless Internet access, and falls for a woman with leathery wings on her back in Someone Comes to Town, Someone Leaves Town. But Alan is forced to return home and confront his misfit past when his murderous and deformed brother David reappears. Cory Doctorow adroitly interconnects these peculiar plots â€” e.g., the wireless blanket is used to track David’s movements â€” and successfully experiments with a risky prose style.`
