New Doctorow Novel

Good news from last week is that Cory Doctorow has released a new book – ‘Eastern Standard Tribe‘. For those who have never heard of Doctorow, he’s one of the people behind a blog called Boing Boing and also the writer of last year’s “Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom“, which was not only a great story, but also the item which introduced me to the Creative Commons license; you see Doctorow makes his works downloadable under license, allowing people to read the whole thing – unimpeded by rights management, and if you like it, you can buy a copy of the book. I applaud this, and yes, I will be buying a copy of the new book too.
