  1. I put up a version at http://www.xs4all.nl/~collin/test/, because I wanted to be able to refer to the story without having people have to go through that whole Salon registration rigmarole. However, I am not sure that in doing so I did not break the license. In the end I decided you would not have licensed it if you did not want it distributed. Still, let me know if I did anything wrong.

  2. Thanks for sharing that with us Branko. I too greatly dispise the crap you have to go through at Salon. I can understand their position and reasoning, but why do they have to make it so tedious and difficult? Just put up a basic name/pass authentication that can be kludged by http://www.BugMeNot.com like everything else. :P

  6. Good, that there are thoughts on those lines too - despite it being quite dark clored story it gives interesting perspective on potential new economy rising from the social environment created by the online games. Take for example robots working in hazardous environments, process monitoring, offices - the need to move human brain capacity for doing work is not needed in many differenet areas. The technology is there; the most agile and untangled minds are to use it first and as always the ethics on new frontiers will be quite different from the one we are used to...

  8. I came across 'Anda's Game' in the 'Voices' anthology on Podiobooks.com, I was very impressed, and played it in the car for the whole family on a long drive back from our Holiday in Ireland. It must hve hit home because it cause some discussion between myself and my teenage daugter about the ending. I thought the Sci-Fi short story was a thing of the past, not having seen many anthologies in book shops recently, but it seems that the creative commons licencing and the efforts of people like Stephen Eley at Escapepod and Mur Lafferty (of GeekFuActionGrip) who is responsible for compiling 'Voices' are carving a new route to market for authors. After hearing your stuff on Escape pod, I'm visiting your site to find out about your other stuff. BTW I think you got the English stuff about right in Anda's game.

  10. Wonderful story! I don't think the future of this is very far off. A cross between Lineage2 and SecondLife might present very similar scenarios.

  13. Anda's Game comes across in audio very well, I think. Print version is even better. Great story.

  17. A great story and it has been adapted in a lot many ways. The narrative here is just perfect and engrossing. This is a great new medium of storytelling specially fiction ones which are so very difficult to find.
