Cory Doctorow is a Canadian author best known for writing the Little Brother series of books. That series debuted in 2008 with the release of Little Brother, the first in the series. Doctorow has also written numerous standalone novels, short stories, and graphic novels.

Doctorow is of British ancestry; he traces his antecedents to Jewish communities domiciled in Eastern Europe through his grandparents who, in the run-up to relocating to Canada, originated from Eastern Europe. His birthname is Cory Efram Doctorow and he was born in July 1971 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Doctorow, who co-founded an ill-fated software company, juggles various occupations in addition to his work as an author. He is also a cyber rights activist, blogger, public speaker, and journalist.

For his early education, Cory Doctorow attended SEED School. For his undergraduate studies, Cory Doctorow drifted from one university to another and, eventually, ended up attending four different universities. However, he did not graduate from any of those universities. The last university that he attended was the Ontario-based University of Waterloo until he dropped out in the early 1990s and started working in technology companies.

Doctorow is a recipient of a degree honoris causa (in the field of computer science) proffered by the UK-based The Open University. He has also chaired University of Southern California’s Center for Public Diplomacy.

Cory Doctorow has been writing since he was aged twelve started cashing in on his short story writing skills at the age of seventeen. Doctorow has written standalone novels, graphic novels, series of books, collections, several short stories, and non-fiction work. He has co-authored literary work with writers such as Canadian author Holy Phillips, English author Charles Stross, and American novelist Shelley Powers.

Cory Doctorow debuted in the early 2000s, aged 31, and his debut book was a standalone novel. However, it was not until the late 2000s when he wrote his first book in a series. The first edition was originally published in January 2008, titled Little Brother; and the series it is contained in, also titled Little Brother, is shelved under the young-adult fiction, science fiction (especially the dystopia sub-genre), and general fiction genres.

Marcus Yallow is the featured protagonist in Little Brother written by Cory Doctorow. Marcus Yallow is nicknamed w1n5ton and aged seventeen. He hails from San Francisco. His rebellious streak aside, Yallow is an a shadowy gifted computer guru, albeit one with a penchant for hacking systems. His now aging parents were revolutionaries in their heydays, a trait that the mischievous Yallow has clearly inherited.

In Cory Doctorow’s first book in the series, Little Brother, the bubble bursts when Marcus Yallow and his notorious friends sneak from their school to participate in a scavenger hunt. Unbeknownst to them, terrorists strike in San Francisco, destroying the Bay Bridge.

This prompts Homeland Security to arrest them on suspicions of terrorist connections wherein they are taken to a covert detention camp. The cruel and injurious interrogation technique that they undergo irks Yallow. When the authorities finally release him, a furious Yallow declares cyber warfare on Homeland Security. The unfolding story in this techno-thriller is mind-blowing and proof that it deserved the many literary awards it clinched or got nominated for.
