"Cory Doctorow's four futuristic novellas are aided by four well-chosen narrators who each capture the essence of their given story." — AudioFile Magazine

From New York Times bestselling author Cory Doctorow, Radicalized is four urgent SF novellas of America's present and future within one audiobook.

Told through one of the most on-pulse genre voices of our generation, Radicalized is a timely audiobook comprised of four SF novellas connected by social, technological, and economic visions of today and what America could be in the near, near future.

Unauthorized Bread is a tale of immigration, the toxicity of economic and technological stratification, and the young and downtrodden fighting against all odds to survive and prosper.

In Model Minority, a Superman-like figure attempts to rectifiy the corruption of the police forces he long erroneously thought protected the defenseless...only to find his efforts adversely affecting their victims.

Radicalized is a story of a darkweb-enforced violent uprising against insurance companies told from the perspective of a man desperate to secure funding for an experimental drug that could cure his wife's terminal cancer.

The fourth story, Masque of the Red Death, harkens back to Doctorow's Walkaway, taking on issues of survivalism versus community.

Quotes & Awards

  • Cory Doctorow's four futuristic novellas are aided by four well-chosen narrators who each capture the essence of their given story. The works reflect today's issues and come to life through Doctorow's usual insightful and critical lens. Each novella offers something interesting-- from Poe's classic story reimagined as a tale of a modern apocalypse ("Masque of the Red Death") to a story of homegrown terrorism as a result of inadequate health insurance ("Radicalized"), a story of the racial politics of a superhuman alien on earth ("Model Minority"), and another on corporate exploitation of the poor through automation and product placement ("Unauthorized Bread").
