Back in 2012, San Francisco's Custom Made Theater Co mounted a
production of a stage adaptation of my novel Little Brother, written by
Josh Costello. It played to sold-out houses. To my everlasting regret, I
couldn't afford to fly from my home in London to see it before it closed.

But Josh and the company recorded their opening night! And - after
clearing this with my literary and screen agents - I've given them
permission to put it online. It is the world online premiere of the show!


The show will be a limited run on Youtube from Jun 8-28. The Custom Made
Theater Co is soliciting voluntary payments from viewers, with 75% of
the proceeds to the company (which is hurting badly for funding) and 25%
to the Theatre Bay Area Performing Arts Worker Relief Fund.

I couldn't be happier about this. If you want a taste of what the show
was like, here's the trailer from back in 2012:


Meanwhile, there's plenty more coming in Little Brother-land! On Jul 7,
Tor is releasing an omnibus edition of Little Brother and its sequel,
Homeland, with a new (and amazing) intro by Edward Snowden.


And on Oct 12, Tor will publish ATTACK SURFACE, the long-awaited third
Little Brother book - it's a standalone about Masha, the young woman who
appears at the beginning and end of the first two books, as she grapple
with her complicity with mass surveillance and oppression.

If you preorder Attack Surface, you'll also get a new Marcus Yallow
story, Force Multiplier, which will be delivered as both an audiobook
and an ebook on publication day!
