Short biography
From Cory Doctorow himself "Writers always ask if I'm related to award-winning novelist E.L. Doctorow. The answer is "probably." Family legend has it that my paternal grandfather's uncle is E.L.'s grandfather. My folks met E.L. in 1998 and tried this theory out on him, and he said that it sounded about right, but didn't seem very excited by it." -- http://www.answers.com/Q/Is_Cory_Doct...
