Returning to the world of Little Brother and Homeland, Attack Surface takes us five minutes into the future, to a world where everything is connected and everyone is vulnerable. Return to the world of Little Brother and Homeland . Attack Surface takes us five minutes into the future, to a world where everything is connected and everyone is vulnerable. Masha Maximow has made some bad choices in life - choices that hurt people. But she's also made some pretty decent ones. In the log file of life, however, she can't quite work out which side of the ledger she currently stands. Masha works for Xoth Intelligence, an InfoSec company upgrading the Slovstakian Interior Ministry's ability to spy on its citizens' telecommunications with state-of-the-art software (at least, as state-of-the-art as Xoth is prepared to offer in its middle-upper pricing tier). Can you offset a day-job helping repressive regimes spy on their citizens with a nighttime hobby where you help those same citizens evade detection? Masha is about to find out. Pacy, passionate, and as current as next week, Attack Surface is a paean to activism, to courage, to the drive to make the world a better place.

I think it'll change lives' NEIL GAIMAN on Little Brother 'One of our most important science fiction writers' KIM STANLEY ROBINSON

Reviews for Attack Surface (#3 Little Brother)

PRAISE FOR LITTLE BROTHER: 'A wonderful, important book ... I think it'll change lives' Neil Gaiman. 'One of our most important science fiction writers' Kim Stanley Robinson. 'The right book at the right time from the right author - and, not entirely coincidentally, Cory Doctorow's best novel yet' John Scalzi. 'Everything we've come to expect from Cory Doctorow and more' William Gibson. 'I couldn't put it down, and I loved it' Jo Walton. 'What pushed Attack Surface above other near future and technothrillers is its social consciousness and Doctorow's commitment to knowing his subject matter. I don't think I have read another piece of fiction that has informed me as much as this one about real-world technology. The writing style and character development is enough to satisfy any reader of speculative fiction but for those that like their fiction tech heavy, they will love it' SF Book Reviews.
