Seller: Cory Doctorow
Offered: Naming rights for a character in Homeland, the sequel to Little Brother. Homeland is to be published in 2013 by Tor Teens. You will work with Cory to name a character in the upcoming novel.
Cory Doctorow is already a very well-known author, but this is by far his best book yet. Little Brother hosts a careful and accreted argument, not all of which I agree with and (looking at the degree to which so many of my students have dispensed with privacies my generation take for granted) not all of which I suspect matters to teens (but the generational differences and understandings of these relationships are also an element of the argument). In other words, it is a polemical book, and all the better for it. -- Farah Mendelsohn, Strange Horizons
