EW PICK

If you want to glimpse the future of copyright policing, video-game sweatshops, robotic intelligence, info war, and how computer geeks will survive the apocalypse, then Overclocked, Cory Doctorow’s latest collection of shorts, is your oracle.

Studio Pitch
I, Robot meets Dr. Strangelove.

Lowdown
