Cory Doctorow is an up-and-coming science fiction author who, today, released his second novel, Eastern Standard Tribe. The coolness factor went through the roof when I realized he is also releasing the book FREE over the internet in a variety of formats and licensed using the Creative Commons License.
I’ve just started reading it, but I’ll be sure to give a full review some time in the near future. I first heard about Cory after reading a short story of his on Salon. I’d also heard his name mentioned by Wil Wheaton several times. Cory, ever the busy guy, is also one of the people behind the excellent community blog, Boing Boing, which I try to read daily.
