On Oct 12, Tor Books will publish ATTACK SURFACE, the third Little Brother book – unlike the previous two, it’s not YA, and unlike the previous two, it stars Masha, the young woman who works for the DHS and then a private security firm.
It’s a book about rationalization and redemption: how good people talk themselves into doing bad things, and what it takes to bring them back from the brink. I’m incredibly proud of it.
It’s available for pre-order now, and if you send your receipt for your pre-purchase (from any retailer!) to Tor, they’ll send you FORCE MULTIPLIER, a new Marcus Yallow story.
It’s a story about stalkerware, technological self-determination, allyship, and the consequences of getting tech very, very wrong. I wrote it especially for fans of the series, and am forever in Eva Galperin’s debt for her help with the ending.
If you like infosec, puzzles and justice, this is one for you. Please help me spread the word!
Ulrich Oberender and his 11th grade students in a German high school created this “Edu-Breakout” based on my novel Little Brother: it’s a series of puzzles and challenges based on the book that engage deeply with both the privacy technology and the privacy ethics that run through the book! They call it “a digital escape room” and you’ll need to solve some challenges really early on to get very far!

It’s been ten years since the publication of my bestselling novel Little Brother; though the novel was written more than a decade ago, and though it deals with networked computers and mobile devices, it remains relevant, widely read, and widely cited even today. more

Since 2001, authoritarians in the South Korean government have been attempting to pass mass surveillance legislation, and they have seized upon the latest North Korean saber-rattling as the perfect excuse for ramming it through the SK Parliament. more
Derek Bruff teaches a first-year college writing seminar in mathematics, an unusual kind of course that covers a lot of ground, and uses a novel as some of its instructional material — specifically, my novel Little Brother. more
It hits shelves today, featuring an essay I wrote specifically for this edition, tying together Korean politics — especially surveillance and censorship — with global mass-surveillance and the themes in the book.
