Praise

“Doctorow uses science fiction as a kind of cultural WD-40, loosening hinges and dissolving adhesions to peer into some of society’s unlighted corners.”  —New York Times

“Utterly contemporary and deeply peculiar—a hard combination to beat (or, these days, to find).”  —William Gibson, author of Neuromancer

“Everything comes under Doctorow’s microscope, and he manages to be both up to date and off the cuff in the best possible way.”  —Locus

“One of the genre’s fresh new talents, one of the few who seamlessly mixes the future with the bizarre.”  —Rocky Mountain News

“Doctorow shows us life from the point-of-view of the plugged-in generation and makes it feel like a totally alien world.”  —Montreal Gazette

Description

Burn, Baby, Burn.

An incendiary mixture of genres and voices, this collection of short stories compiles a unique set of work that revolves around riots, revolts, and revolution. From the turbulent days of unionism in the streets of New York City during the Great Depression to a group of old women who meet at their local café to plan a radical act that will change the world forever, these original and once out-of-print stories capture the various ways people rise up to challenge the status quo and change up the relationships of power. Ideal for any fan of noir, science fiction, and revolution and mayhem, this collection includes works from Sara Paretsky, Paco Ignacio Taibo II, Cory Doctorow, Kim Stanley Robinson, and Summer Brenner.

Praise

“Rad Dad gives voice to egalitarian parenting and caregiving by men in a truly radical fashion, with its contributors challenging traditional norms of what it means to be a father and subverting paradigms, while making you laugh in the process. With its thoughtful and engaging stories on topics like birth, stepfathering, gender, politics, pop culture, and the challenges of kids growing older, this collection of essays and interviews is a compelling addition to books on fatherhood.”  —Jennifer Silverman, co-editor, My Baby Rides the Short Bus: The Unabashedly Human Experience of Raising Kids with Disabilities

“With a diverse, smart, and political collection of contributors, Rad Dad will be an instant classic among the new generation of parents whose parenting intersects with their politics. There’s no way you can put this book down without feeling both inspired and entertained by the bold honesty and fierce love heard in these voices.”  —Jessica Mills, author of My Mother Wears Combat Boots: A Parenting Guide for the Rest of Us

“Rad Dad is one of the most important voices on the planet—at once parental, political, feminist, humble, and full of heart. In Rad Dad, none of our assumptions about parenting, gender, or the way things ‘have to be’ in the world go unexplored.”  —Ariel Gore, author of Bluebird: On Women and Happiness and The Hip Mama Survival Guide

“Rad Dad is a rattlebag of the rough-hewn and the polished, the insightful and the infuriating, the comic and the sublime. But it’s always passionate, critical and, in moments, heart-stopping. In short: Rad Dad is fab.” —Raj Patel, author ofThe Value of Nothing

“Rad Dad is a book about all the shapes and sizes that dads come in, united by the simple narrative thread of man and his children. Read the book and love your kids.  It’s that simple.”  —Tom Matlack, co-founder of The Good Men Project
