One of our research areas focused on sf writers writing, like PKD, in places, particularly works set on the West Coast of the US. Cory Doctorow’s Little Brother, set in San Francisco after a terrorist attack brings an outsized authoritarian response, combines setting and science fiction in fascinating ways. Jorey Cantu used Google Earth to map the movement of the characters in the novel, providing files that document every location, then a leaner look at key sites, and a voice tour of key locations from the novel. Download the Google Earth files here. She also created a fantastic pamphlet you can download that invites you to play tourist and visit the places where Doctorow’s novel happened.
