Following in the footsteps of (at least) Cory Doctorow (with Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom, Eastern Standard Tribe, Someone Comes to Town, Someone Leaves Town and six of the nine stories in his collection A Place So Foreign and Eight More) and Mike Brotherton (with Star Dragon), Tor author Peter Watts has released Starfish, the first book in his Rifter series, available for free (in PDF format) under the Creative Commons License.

  1. FYI: The good folks over at MobileRead have kindly converted Starfish to other formats (HTML, iSilo and Plucker)

    Go, go gadget CCL!

  2. This is a fantastic book by a great Canadian writer. I highly recommend it. It’s pretty dark by most science fiction standards. The characters aren’t particularily sympathetic and the setting is bleak.

    Underwater science fiction is a sub-genre that hasn’t been in vogue for years and this is one of the most up-to-date examples that I know.
