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.

Cyberpunk isn’t dead. It has just lost some of its more superficial, passÃ© punkishness (the leather jackets and the mirrorshades) and continues to evolve, rather than settling into the wax museum of old trends. The greatest challenge may be generational. Where Gibson and his fellows served as pioneers back in the 20th century, the real world is catching up and this century’s cybernauts feel far more at home in the territory. But what IS “home” in a time of accelerating change and strangeness? In his first collection A PLACE SO FOREIGN AND EIGHT MORE, Cory Doctorow pursues that question through the wild twists and turns of past, present and future, equipped with the literary tools to make it matter.
