I love reading Cory Doctorow. His stories are fun, and his ability to wind a solid science fiction tale is superb. There is the occasional story which does not get me excited, but the clear majority have me smiling from ear to ear. He knows just how to blend future and technology together into an absorbing alternate reality.In my opinion, Shadow Of The Mothaship was the story that fell short in this collection, but the other eight were fantastic.

Great if you like short stories. Better if you like sci/fi.
