The Top 7 Libertarian Science Fiction Novels

#3. Homeland by Cory Doctorow


The Libertarian Futurist Society gave 2014’s Prometheus Award for best novel of the year to Cory Doctorow’s sequel to his 2009 Prometheus winner Little Brother. It also won the Copper Cylinder Award for best Canadian young adult science fiction novel.

Homeland continues the adventures of a rebellious young leader and a group of tech-savvy hackers who possess damning Wikileaks-style evidence of massive government abuse and corruption.

This story of a young generation’s struggle against an invasive national-security state seems to be a favorite of Edward Snowden. Doctorow proudly posted a clip of Citzenfour on his website where Snowden’s copy of the book is seen on a hotel table as he’s packing to leave.
