The Doctorow is In
Sci-fi writer Cory Doctorow's new short story collection, Overclocked is out and is a one fine piece of science-fictioning. My Lovely Wife's enthusiasm for it is so blatant that it actually triggered the long-dormant "hey, are you reading another writer in our bed?" twitch. I urge all of you to buy the book. But, then again, you don't have to -- as usual, Cory has offered the entire text in downloads and in some cases podcasts. For free.
Hack it, remix it, make mini-comics, send them to your friends. Write songs using the dialogue, make machinima -- whatever. Why does Cory do this? Because he believes, as I do : "Obscurity is a far greater threat to authors and creative artists than piracy."
Downloads here. My favorite is Anda's Game. Enjoy.
