Cory Doctorow is letting you download his new collection Overclocked for free. I won’t go into the whole Creative Commons thing, which Cory’s been doing for a while now. Instead a comment on the book. I’ve read all of the stories in Overclocked, and reprinted half of them in various year’s bests, which is something of an endorsement. One appeared in the prestigious ‘Best American Stories’ series, another was up for the Hugo, and still another was published on something called Flurb. I wouldn’t be surprised if at least one more was up for, or even won, the Hugo. And there’s a cool long novella that appears here for the first time in English. Personally I think you should buy an actual dead trees version, but if you want to try before you buy, you can download it too.
