Pirate Cinema nominated for the Prometheus Award

I was delighted today to discover that my novel Pirate Cinema had been nominated for the Libertarian Futurist Society's annual Prometheus Award, amid a slate of absolutely wonderful books:

Arctic Rising, Tobias Buckell (Tor)
The Unincorporated Future, Dani & Eytan Kollin (Tor)
Pirate Cinema, Cory Doctorow (Tor)
Darkship Renegades, Sarah Hoyt (Baen)
Kill Decision, Daniel Suarez (Penguin)

I was proud as punch to win the award for my novel Little Brother, and I'm very excited to be back on the roster. Many thanks to the jurors.




  1. The Prometheus Award: for highly anticipated works of geek fiction that ended up being confusing let-downs. Or were they referring to the book of the same name?

  2. This book -changed- my perspective on all things Internet and piracy. The statement about knowledge and how it was meant to be accessible to all people has made me want to stand up and participate actively in such a movement (if only I was older).

  3. Cory, the book Pirate Cinema first introduced me to the idea of internet censorship and copyright law. It has further inspired me to fight as hard as I can to ban copyright and censorship. This is my all time favorite book and forever will be, and I hope to be half the writer you are. See you at the Confusing Peach of the Forest Green Beethoven.

    PS., you should do an AMA on reddit.
