40K, an Italian publisher, have brought out a standalone ebook version of my novella Chicken Little, publishing it simultaneously in English and Italian with some lovely illustrations. They’re starting it off at a low price (which will go up on Nov 16): $0.99 in the Kindle store; £0.86 in the UK Kindle store; €0.99 in the German Kindle store; and €0.99 for the Italian edition in Bookrepublic (use discount code 7ATE9).


Cory Doctorow’s novella ‘Chicken Little’ does an excellent job of updating and commenting on some of the themes that informed Pohl & Kornbluth’s classic novel ‘The Space Merchants’. Doctorow’s updated high-tech take on Pohl’s take on Jonathan Swift’s ‘struldbrugs,’ creatures who have immortality but not eternal youth, continuing to age through their extended lives, is particularly ingenious.
I wouldn’t be surprised to see this one show up on an award ballot next year.” -Gardner Dozois, Locus Magazine

“Chicken Little” also appears in my CC-licensed short story collection With a Little Help and was reprinted in The Year’s Best Science Fiction: Twenty-Eighth Annual Collection

I’ve teamed up with McNally-Jackson, a most excellent indie bookstore in Soho, NYC, to print and sell my DIY short story collection With a Little Help right in the store, using an Espresso book-machine. You can order them here, or buy them in-store. It’s similar to the deal I’ve struck with The University of Melbourne’s Custom Book Centre for sales and distribution in Australia in New Zealand. I’m really excited to see how this works out, as there are plenty of amazing stores in the USA with Espresso machines with whom I’d be delighted to make similar arrangements.
