Anda’s Game by Cory Doctorow

16 Jan

I started listening to Cory Doctorow’s podcast of his short story “Anda’s Game” on the way to work this morning. It’s quite good, and I was sorry that traffic on I-405 zipped along the way it did (on account of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day) so I didn’t get to listen to that much of it.

Doctorow sez:

It’s the first in a series of stories I’m writing that riff on the titles of famous SF novels and stories (this one is a play on Orson Scott Card’s “Ender’s Game” — also coming are “I, Robot,” “The Man Who Sold the Moon,” “Jeffty is Five,” and “True Names” — this last with Ben Rosenbaum). This started as a response to Ray Bradbury’s assertion that Michael Moore was a “thief” and a “horrible human being” for using the word “Fahrenheit” in the title of his last movie — but now I’m just finding it fun to deconstruct the stories of the writers who came before me.

Heh. Cool.
