Chicken Little

Chicken Little

Cory Doctorow Franco Brambilla
3.8/5 (339 ratings)
"Cory Doctorow’s novella ‘Chicken Little’ [..] does an excellent job of updating and commenting on some of the themes that informed Pohl & Kornbluth’s classic novel 'The Space Merchants'. Doctorow’s updated high-tech take on Pohl’s take on Jonathan Swift’s 'struldbrugs,' creatures who have immortality but not eternal youth, continuing to age through their extended lives, is particularly ingenious.
I wouldn’t be surprised to see this one show up on an award ballot next year."
Gardner Dozois, Locus Magazine

A story with a product designer, jetpacks and an immortal quadrillionaire living in a vat.

"Chicken Little" also appears in the collection "With a Little Help".
