Reality Break Episode 2 – Cory Doctorow

June 29th, 2008

Our guest this episode is Cory Doctorow. This is the first interview recorded for this program back when this project was first coming together. I sat down with Cory at Orycon 2006 and we discussed fandom and his upbringing in it, the intersection of SF and cyberculture, and how fantastic literature has become the new mainstream and influenced the world we live in.

Cory Doctorow is one of the co-editors of Boing Boing. He has published the novels Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom, Eastern Standard Tribe, and Someone Comes to Town Someone Leaves Town – all from Tor Books. He has also published the story collections a Place So Foreign from Four Walls Eight Windows and Overclocked from Thunder’s Mouth Press. IDW Publishing has put out the comic book adaptation series Cory Doctorow’s Futuristic Tales of the Here and Now, and his newest book is the young adult novel Little Brother from Tor books.

    Outstanding interview, Dave. You hit some different points than most interviewers, and it really seemed like you and Cory had fun with it. I’m a pretty big Doctorow fan, so I’ve listened to a lot of ’em, but you definitely reach the top tier of his interviews that I’ve heard with this.
