For those of you who may have missed our first blog on this, Cory Doctorow’s first novel Down and Out in The Magic Kingdom is out, and available as a free download in any number of formats for PC or PDA reading — the author even permits use of P2P trading and printing. I’ve just starting reading it, but so far it’s a ripping read. Highly recommended. It’s also available from Amazon.com as a real book, if that’s your bag. Those inclined to micropay the author can probably just paypal him, though he doesn’t ask for it.
Update: Cory Doctorow was on NPR this morning (Thurs.) talking about the benefits of allowing his work to be traded in electronic form. Whata coincidence!
