Cory Doctorow the renowned author, activist, journalist and blogger, paid a flying visit to London on Saturday, ahead of the publication of his new SF novel, Walkaway. Publisher Nicolas Cheetham acquired the novel from Danny Baror at Baror International, and it will be published in April this year. Walkaway is ‘a multi-generational SF thriller about the momentous changes coming in the next hundred years: an epic tale of revolution, love, war and the end of death.’ Doctorow’s previous novel, Little Brother, was a New York Times bestseller.
Doctorow undertook a whistle-stop tour of London bookshops on Saturday, taking in Daunts, Foyles, Forbidden Planet, Queens Park Books, Waterstones Tottenham Court Road and the London Review Bookshop, where he signed proof copies of Walkaway.
Nicolas Cheetham said ‘We are thrilled to welcome Cory and Walkaway to HoZ. If recent events have left you wondering how you might build a post-capitalist, post-scarcity, post-human utopia while all around you crumbles, read this book. Walkaway has already received excellent pre-publication reviews from William Gibson, Neal Stephenson, Kim Stanley Robinson, Yochai Benkler and Edward Snowden.’
Doctorow will be returning to the UK for a nationwide PR tour in May this year.
