Chicken Little

A Novella by

"With Chicken Little, Cory Doctorow proves that science fiction is alive and kicking. If there's a reason for that, it's because SF isn't about the future at all, but about the endless capacity of human beings to evolve in extraordinary ways."
Graham Edwards, Fantasy writer

"Cory Doctorow's novella 'Chicken Little' [..] does an excellent job of updating and commenting on some of the themes that informed Pohl & Kornbluth's classic novel 'The Space Merchants'. Doctorow's updated high-tech take on Pohl's take on Jonathan Swift's 'struldbrugs,' creatures who have immortality but not eternal youth, continuing to age through their extended lives, is particularly ingenious.
I wouldn't be surprised to see this one show up on an award ballot next year."
Gardner Dozois, Locus Magazine
