Cory Doctorow’s Futuristic Tales of the Here and Now

IDW adapted six of my short stories for comic book, publishing them as singles in 2007. In 2008, they published the full collection in a single set of covers, and I released them as a Creative Commons download under the Attribution-ShareAlike-Noncommercial license. Collected in this volume are adaptations of my award-winning stories "Craphound," "Anda's Game," "When Sysadmins Ruled the Earth," "After the Siege," "I, Robot" and "Nimby and the D-Hoppers."

  7. The story of the collecting alien brought tears to my eyes. As a reformed (ha ha) collectible person it has always struck me interesting that people from all over the world can be found to share in your passion for either going after a trigger of some childhood memory or something to complete that comic book collection!
    Nice story!

    Just finished 'Eastern Standard Tribe' from podiobooks.com. GREAT book and great read (if a little frenetic). Do you have any other books on audio?

    I'm more inclined to pay for things on creative commons than regular stuff (which I get from the library.) Is there a way I can donate directly to you rather than giving podiobooks part of it?

    Heard of you on StarshipSofa. Susan.

    Dear Cory,

    I am a passionate reader of your stories and novels from China. One challenge for me (and probably many other Chinese) is that the download links to archive.org is blocked in China... would it be possible for you to provide download links to mirror sites as well? That would help a lot!

    Thanks.
