Download for Free
I’ve made six of the nine stories in the collection available for download here, under a Creative Commons license that allows you to copy the stories freely, provided that you do so for noncommercial purposes. As with my novel, I’ve shipped these stories without doomed, dumbass DRM, without use-restriction, and without requiring any kind of proprietary reader. These stories are available as ASCII text files (ASCII is the new PDF!).
Want to convert them to something else? Go right ahead! I’d appreciate it if you’d upload them somewhere and post a link under the “additional formats” discussion area attached to each story.
Entire book for Java-enabled mobile phones (Thanks to Nicholas Bennett for preparing this)
Doctorow embeds exposition in the action and dialogue, making his fiction fun to read–in other words, you don’t have to slog through idle descriptions of technology or mythical family trees.
