Are there any good novels about hacking? Preferably fiction but if it's good I'll take non-fiction as well.

Ender's Game has Andrew Wiggin hack a computer username system, but it's not fundamentally about hacking.

Neuromancer

I would dare say the non-fiction available is superior to the fiction. Some good titles, limited to the topic of hacking itself:
* Steven Levy, Hackers: Heroes of the Computer Revolution [the best general history I think]
* Eric S. Raymond, ed., The Jargon File [hacker dictionary; also a good author to know for open-source topics]
* Katie Hafner and John Markoff, Cyberpunk: Outlaws and Hackers on the Computer Frontier [some interesting examples]
* Bruce Sterling, The Hacker Crackdown: Law and Disorder on the Electronic Frontier [a good author to know for legal issues, security, and so on]
* Clifford Stoll, The Cuckoo's Egg: Tracking a Spy Through the Maze of Computer Espionage [a detailed account of an early and significant security incident]
* Steve Wozniak with Gina Smith, iWoz [Wozniak is a great hacker in the true sense of the word, e.g., the efficiency of his designs for the original Apple computers]

cuckoo's egg is boring as fuck though. if you can read german read '23', a non-fiction about the hackers stoll caught, only from their perspective. it's a tie-in to the movie, but it's actually pretty great (the movie is, too).
