Cory Doctorow’s twoNew York Times-bestselling novels of youthful rebellion against the torture-and-surveillance state – now in a softcover omibus for the adult market
Little Brother:Marcus Yallow was 17 when he found himself caught in the aftermath of a terrorist attack on San Francisco. In the wrong place at the wrong time, Marcus and his friends were arrested by the Department of Homeland Security and whisked away to a secret prison where they were brutally interrogated for days.
When the DHS finally let them go, Marcus discovered that his city had become a police state. He knew that no one would believe his story, which left him one option: to take down the DHS himself. Can one brilliant teenage hacker actually fight back? Maybe, but only if he’s verycareful and smart.
Homeland:A few years after Marcus takes on the tyrannical security state, the economy has collapsed and Marcus finds himself employed by a crusading political reformer. Then his former nemesis, Masha, emerges with a thumbdrive containing WikiLeaks-style evidence of government wrongdoing.
When Marcus witnesses Masha’s kidnapping by the same agents who tortured him earlier, he has to decide whether to save her or leak the archive that will cost his employer the election.
Surrounded by friends who consider him a hacker hero, stalked by people who look like they’re used to inflicting pain, Marcus has to act, and act fast.
