Accelerando!

Wednesday, June 8th 2005

Can you think of a major print novel simultaneously released digitally under the creative commons license?

Charles Strauss’ Accelerando is the first I’ve heard of. Strauss is a sci-fi writer, and I’ve seen a number of positive advance reviews around the ‘net. Stumbled across his site for the novel, and was astonished to see that “later this month” the entire text will be available on the site for download!

I’d love to know how he got the publishers to go along with this idea. Can’t wait to load it on my REB1100!

Plus, the title is tons of fun to say.
